Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski to Miss Sunday’s Affair Against Chicago

The Patriots will be without one of their biggest targets on Sunday as they battle to take on the Bears, as reports say that tight end Rob Gronkowski didn’t make the team’s trip to Chicago.

Gronk wasn’t on the team flight because of the back injury he’s been nursing, according to multiple reports. Gronkowski has also been dealing with an ankle injury, but it appears to be the back injury that kept him from making the trip.

Although the Patriots haven’t officially ruled Gronkowski out, it seems very unlikely he would play. It is possible he could travel separately, without the team, but that’s rare.

Gronkowski is leading the Patriots with 405 receiving yards this season, and New England will miss him if forced to play without him.

It will be interesting to see what the offensive gameplan looks like with the big guy in the lineup.
