Additionally, Fox Sports reports that the Patriots are hoping that they'll have their tight end back for Week 6.
He's been limited a handful of times and this situation is one of the murkiest in all of the NFL. Gronkowski still hasn't played this season and the Patriots have not been able to fill the void left by their All-Pro tight end.
Despite being 4-0, the Patriots offense isn't up to its usual tricks. Tom Brady's 6.4 yards per attempt is his lowest since 2002 and the Patriots rank just 20th in points per game. He is developing a rapport with Kenbrell Thompkins, but Gronkowski will undoubtedly be his go-to guy in the red zone.
Fantasy impact: Chances are fantasy owners are going to have to wait another week. This could be the last chance to buy low on Gronk and Tom Brady has to be hoping to have him back ASAP. It's not too far-fetched to think that he can put up eight TDs and 1,000 yards upon his return, so the patience should pay off.
