New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (forearm) remained limited in practice on Thursday. Gronk made a surprise return to practice last Friday, his first session since breaking his forearm in Week 11.
There is still no indication that Gronk is ready to return and play against the Jaguars this week, but most people expect him to come back in Week 17.
Fantasy Impact: Obviously, a Week 17 return won't help fantasy owners, many of whom end their playoffs this week. Re-draft owners should have found a Plan B weeks ago.
That said, the Patriots have surprised us before with injury news, so I wouldn't count Gronk out until the inactive reports come out on Sunday morning.
