New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (forearm) was limited in practice on Wednesday. Gronkowski is considered to be day-to-day and will likely be a game-time decision, as the Patriots are not usually keen on revealing that information early even if they do know that he will play or not play before Sunday.
The Patriots are 4-1 without Gronkowski, so they should not need him to be active for the purposes of beating the Dolphins at home in Week 17, even though a win will keep them alive for a bye week in the playoffs. If he plays, it will be because he is fully cleared by doctors.
Fantasy Take: I would not personally hold out hope for Gronkowski to play this weekend. If the Pats win and get a bye week, it will give Gronkowski two additional weeks of rest. At best, he would probably lose significant snaps to Aaron Hernandez if he is active.
