Rob Gronkowski not expected to play Week 5

Gronkowski (thigh) is expected to play in Week 6's matchup with the Jets, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

The Patriots were without one of their biggest weapons for Thursday night's game against the Buccaneers as Rob Gronkowski was a late scratch with a thigh injury. He's had 5 carries for 18 yards and 4 receptions for 49 yards and a touchdown in two games in 2017. He did have three catches for 41 yards against New Orleans in Week 2.

Gronkowski, of course, is an All-Pro tight end and a major factor in the Patriots offense.

Gronkowski was limited in Wednesday's practice after being a full participant in each of the previous two days for New England (2-2).

But New England fans may be able to rest a little easier with the report both Gronkowski and Burkhead should be back by the time New England takes the field again.

"Just to prepare for a Thursday night game is totally a lot different", Gronkowski said of his preparation.
