New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receiver Danny Amendola did not travel with the team on Saturday. They will be out for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The news ends another week of speculation for the two players. It was earlier reported that Gronkowski had a 60-40 chance to play, but a report came out Saturday morning saying that Gronkowski felt he wasn't ready to come back for another week or two. He will now be shooting for a Week 5 return.
Amendola will be missing his third game in a row as he tries to work his way back from a groin injury. He got in a week of limited practice, but still has no definite timetable for a return. Julian Edelman will be starting in his place once again and figures to be Tom Brady's go-to target against the Falcons.
