NFL.com's Albert Breer reports that New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (forearm) had screws inserted into his broken arm and he hopes to return in Week 14 against the Texans. Gronk broke his forearm on an extra point play in the Patriots' blowout win over the Colts after putting up a huge fantasy day.
With Gronk definitely out for the Thanksgiving game, look for the Pats to fast-track Aaron Hernandez (ankle) for a return.
Fantasy Impact: Normally an injury like this would end a player's season, but as we learned over the summer, Gronk is not a normal dude.
If Gronk's optimistic timetable holds true, he will be back just in time for the fantasy playoffs, so keep stashing him on your bench. We'll continue to monitor the situation.
