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.
