NFL.com's Albert Breer expects Rob Gronkowski (broken left forearm) to push for a Week 14 return.
The Patriots have a critical two-game swing with the Texans and 49ers beginning in Week 14, but that would have Gronk missing just two games despite being given a 4-8 week timetable. It's doubtful he'll be ready for Houston, but if he is, it means he'd be a go for the fantasy playoffs. We would say a clearer idea of Gronk's timeline should emerge in the coming days, but then again, we're talking about the Patriots. What we do know is that Gronk can be safely ruled out for Thanksgiving.
kenny britt would be back sometime mid 2017
lol Fantasy speaking?
Bill belichek I hate you....
Trust me guys, he WON'T be back until the playoffs. They pretty much already have a playoff spot and they will do alright without him. He will be questionable come week 14 and 15 but they will say "f**k it" and keep him rested until the playoffs because they definitely need him there. Trade him, you're way better off.
The only way a trade makes sense is if you're in redraft league and the trade deadline has not passed. If you're in a keeper league, you'd be dumb to trade him because of this injury.
SAY IT AINT SO!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is too bad for Gronk and his owners, but blame BeIchick for this one. The guy always runs up the score and Gronk should not have been out on the field at that time. They were up by 30 points late in the 4th quarter and still throwing the ball.
What a classless POS!
JayTee, I agree with the "POS" and classless assertion but how many players, in the history of the NFL have gotten hurt while blocking during an extra point? Regardless of the score and time of game, Gronk is in on that "package". That's not to say that no one else can block during an extra point but that's the way their team is set up. Now, on the other hand, wheat happened in Washington with McCoy was sickening! Reid had Bryce Brown in a few weeks ago while up by 10 points, running the ball, this past week he has McCoy in running the ball with 1:44 to go while down by 25? That is a FIRE-ABLE offense!!!
I totally agree and well put. I think this was a case of a lame duck coach just winging it and checking out at the expense of one of his best players.
Reid said, he will not get off the ship while it's going down. Ah huhhh, he has 6 million reasons($) not too! Hahaaa
awesome, isn't it?
Do some research. The injury was on an extra point. How ever they score, pass TD, special teams or rush TD they have to kick the extra point and ni the NFL there is no 2nd team for the extra point. Gronk had to be out there.
Is there an echo in here? Said this 2 days ago...

Yes, I am aware of that. But what in the hell were they doing still throwing the ball and trying to score up by 30 points with a few minutes left in the game!!!
Typical run up the score mentality by NE coaching staff.
Get your facts right, he got hurt on an extra point, not a passing play!
For the last time, I am aware of that! But on that drive, they were still throwing the ball up by 30 points. That was my point.
Belicheck is a historian, he's well aware of the great comebacks in the NFL, he doesn't want to be a TB vs Manning Colts or the Oilers vs a Reich lead Bills or the Chargers vs Manning Broncos
Have you seen Belicheck coach, that's his style. Pile it on.
Yes, hence the reason for my classless POS comment. One of these days, the tables will be turned, and I cannot wait.
As soon as Brady retires. Hahaaaaaa
Unless the hoody goes with him.......
In my lrague. B.Myers is gone. Not much left to choose from.. Dallas Clark and Jermichael Finley is avaiable who would you choose.
That would be a near-miracle if Gronk could come back in time for Week 14!
I Lost Gronk Too
Lucky I HAve T.Gonzalez
But If U need a good Te Look at Brandon myers
who is his backup TE...should I try to play him instead of try for another one in this league free agency ?
Techinically his 'backup' is Aaron Hernandez assuming he's healthy, although he's probably not on free agency. Visanthe Shiancoe will probably play for Gronk either way. He'll probably produce decently.
No, "technically" Gronk's backups are Fells and Manamanowanuui or w/e his name is, Shiancoe backs up Hernandez's position, one is the X and the other the Y
