Gronkowski hauled in six of 10 targets for 83 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Gronkowski sandwiched halftime with touchdown receptions of two and 33 yards. The tight end led his team in targets while finishing second in receiving yards to Brandin Cooks and catching both touchdowns thrown by quarterback Tom Brady in this one. He's been effective when healthy, hauling in four touchdowns while topping 80 yards in four of five games played.

Gronkowski (thigh) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Gronkowski was listed as a full practice participant Friday, as was QB Tom Brady, with the star duo set to work together again this weekend, following the tight end's one-game absence. Gronkowski's average of 79.5 receiving yards per game is tops among NFL players at his position.

Gronkowski (thigh) indicated that he'll be good to go Sunday against the Jets, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's still possible that the star tight end could be officially listed as questionable by the Patriots, but Gronkowski is fully expected to return to the team's lineup after a one-game absence that was caused by a thigh contusion he suffered in Week 4.

Gronkowski (thigh) returned to a limited practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Gronkowski will likely be listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, but at this stage we'd expect the star tight end to return to action this weekend following a one-game absence. Gronkowski suffered a thigh contusion in Week 4 against the Panthers, per Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, and with the Patriots on a short turnaround in Week 5, the oft-injured tight end was held out of last Thursday's game against the Bucs with the long haul in mind.

Gronkowski (thigh) was listed as a non-participant at practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

While Gronkowski was present for warmups at Wednesday's practice, the tight end did not participate in any meaningful team reps, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN.com. That said, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald relays that Gronkowski is expected to be available for Sunday's game against the Jets after sitting out the Patriots' Oct. 5 win over the Buccaneers. Such an outcome would be supported by a return to practice on Gronkowski's part, in any capacity, Thursday.

Gronkowski (thigh) was on the field for the portion of Tuesday's practice that was made available to the media, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Patriots won't have to unveil their first injury report of the week until after Wednesday's practice, but the fact Gronkowski was working out with his teammate a day in advance bodes well for his chances of playing Sunday against the Jets following a one-game hiatus. While Gronkowski was held out during the Patriots' 19-14 win over the Buccaneers on Oct. 5, quarterback Tom Brady eschewed his tight ends almost entirely, with Dwayne Allen and Jacob Hollister combining for one target across 58 offensive snaps. The complexion of the Patriots' offense would change almost entirely in Week 6 if Gronkowski, who has totaled 20 catches for 318 yards and two touchdowns through four games, is back in the fold.

Gronkowski (thigh) is expected to play in Week 6's matchup with the Jets, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gronkowski wasn't able to take the field Thursday night against the Buccaneers due to a thigh contusion. Some good news has arrived for fantasy owners everywhere though, as the Patriots expect the star tight end to return to action in 10 days when the team heads to New York to take on the Jets. However, expected is far from guaranteed, especially for a player with an injury history such as Gronkowski's. Look for more updates on his status to come when the Patriots begin practice next week.

Gronkowski (thigh) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

With Gronkowski inactive, Dwayne Allen profiles as the top candidate to see added looks at tight end for the Patriots on Thursday, with Jacob Hollister also in the mix for additional snaps. Gronkowski will now look to regain his health in time to return to action Oct. 15 against the Jets.

Gronkowski is dealing with a thigh contusion and is not expected to play Thursday night against the Buccaneers, according Adam Schefter of ESPN.

EDGE Analysis

We'll verify Gronkowski's status for the contest as Thursday night's 8:25 ET kickoff approaches, but if Gronkowski is indeed out for the contest, Dwayne Allen would be the top candidate to see added looks at tight end for the Patriots, with Jacob Hollister also in the mix for added work.

Gronkowski (thigh) is expected to play Thursday against Tampa Bay, but may be limited in the contest, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gronkowski was a late addition to the injury report Wednesday, and although it sounds like an inactive status isn't likely, fantasy owners may have to temper their expectations for the top tight end's usage Thursday night. Dwayne Allen may pick up a few extra snaps as a result, but in any case, it's certainly difficult to even consider benching an active Gronk, given his high upside at a thin fantasy football position.
