The Patriots will be putting Gronkowski on the injury report for the rest of the season. It's just what they do. Basically, if a Patriots player is probable, then he shouldn't be on the injury report, and if he's questionable then he's really probable, and so on. Make sense?
Anyhoo, Gronkowski hasn't been too great since his return to the lineup two weeks ago. Last week he had two catches for 27 yards on six targets in a win over the Dolphins. Before that, he was a target monster against the Jets with 17, yielding a productive 114 yards on eight catches.
Fantasy impact: There's no way anyone can bench Gronkowski, even in a tough matchup against the Steelers. Tom Brady still hasn't hit his stride this season and hasn't shown any indication that's coming. Still, the Patriots should be able to get the ball moving at some point and Gronkowski is a top-two tight end play this week.
