Pats TE Rob Gronkowski (back) won't return in Week 12

NFL.com - [Full Article]

The Patriots will be without their top offensive target for the remainder of the evening.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski went to the locker room late in the first quarter against the Jets with a back injury. He was ruled out in the third quarter.

Gronk finished with no catches on two deep targets.

Fantasy Impact: 

Heading into Sunday's contest, Gronk was among many Patriots listed as questionable to play. The tight end suffered a perforated lung against the Seahawks in Week 10 and missed Week 11. Now there's likely more frustration for owners heading into Week 13. The good news is New England plays in a 1 p.m. home game against the Rams so owners will have time to adjust their lineups based on Gronk's status.
