Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back, ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Titans. New England has a Week 11 bye, so we’ll see if Gronk is ready to return come Week 12.

The Boston Herald's Kevin Duffy reports that Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back, ankle) is not expected to play against the Titans on Sunday. That jibes with ESPN's Adam Schefter's report earlier this week. New England has a Week 11 bye, so Gronk will have had nearly a month off when the team returns to action in Week 12. "The Pats seem to be hoping that some rest in November will allow Gronkowski to recapture his top form down the stretch," Duffy writes. Fantasy owners are hoping for the same.

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back, ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Titans after 3 limited practices. Gronk got in just 2 limited practices last week before ending up inactive, so he’s in a slightly better situation this week. And, more importantly, we’ll find out his status by noon ET on Sunday. If active, Gronk will be a mid-range TE1.

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back, ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He was limited last Wednesday, sat out on Thursday and limited again Friday before missing the Sunday night game. We'll track his status over the next few days, but ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier this week that New England might opt to hold Gronk out of Sunday's game against the Titans with their bye coming in Week 11.

Injury Predictor

Gronk has had major and multiple surgeries on his forearm, back and knee the past several years. And he has missed 24 regular-season games the past 5 seasons because of injuries. Gronkowski went surgery-free this offseason, though, and could be in line for a target boost after Brandin Cooks left town and Julian Edelman incurred a 4-game PED suspension.
