Patriots’ TE Rob Gronkowski is not expected to play tonight vs Bucs, per source.

Related players: Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola, Dwayne Allen, Jacob Hollister.

Fantasy Impact:

We'll know for certain once inactives are released at around 7 pm ET. Gronk's absence will boost the outlook of Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan and Danny Amendola, and Dwayne Allen figures to be more involved in the offense than he has been thus far this season. Jacob Hollister would serve as the No. 2 tight end. Last year, Martellus Bennett was actually more productive with Gronk in the lineup, so don't expect any miracles out of Allen.

Pats TE Rob Gronkowski groin injury not believed to be serious

Rob Gronkowski injury watch is officially on for the 2017 season.

The New England Patriots tight end was listed with an official injury for the first time this season during the team's Week 2 win over the New Orleans Saints.

On his sixth catch of the day, Gronkowski appeared to come down awkwardly on a hit and was taken off the field to the blue pop-up injury tent on the sideline. He did not return to the game.

Gronkowski was listed as questionable to return to the game with a groin injury. As of Monday morning, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the issue is not believed to be serious.

Related players: Dwayne Allen, Jacob Hollister

Fantasy Impact:

The story didn't offer a timetable, and, we're not likely to get one from the Patriots at any point, so this is probably going to be a wait-and-see issue; perhaps even a game-time issue. The good news is the Pats play an early contest in Week 3 against Houston. Meanwhile, Allen is next up on the depth chart and will likely see some action on the waiver wire this week. Allen didn't record a catch after Gronk went down, but Hollister did catch one ball for five yards.

Patriots WR Danny Amendola (concussion, knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 2. With Amendola out, Chris Hogan gets a bump as he’s likely to see most of the slot snaps, with Phillip Dorsett likely to see some playing time as well. There have been some rumblings that Rex Burkhead could see some work in the slot, though James White is a more logical choice. The Patriots could also use more 12 personnel, which means Dwayne Allen would see an expanded role.

Schefter: Patriots trading for TE Dwayne Allen

Colts are trading TE Dwayne Allen to the Patriots, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

The Patriots probably looked at Martellus Bennett's asking price and decided instead to trade for Allen, who was disappointing in the first year of the $29 M deal he struck with the Colts last offseason. Allen will serve as the Patriots' second tight end, assuming Rob Gronkowski is healthy. Bennett finished as the #10 TE in that role, though he was actually more productive with Gronk in the lineup. For the Colts, this is big news for the newly re-signed Jack Doyle, who will graduate to starter's snaps. Given Andrew Luck's propensity to throw to his tight end in the red zone, Doyle will be an appealing sleeper in 2017 fantasy drafts. Erik Swoope should also see an increase in snaps.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (hip, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 15. Allen should play on Sunday and may see a an extra target or two with Donte Moncrief sidelined.

Thursday, December 15, 2016, 7:16pm

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (hip) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. It looks like Allen will be out there against the Vikings. He could see an extra red zone target or two with Donte Moncrief sidelined.

Wednesday, December 14, 2016, 7:07pm

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (hip) did not practice Wednesday. Allen should be able to play, but if he can’t it would be a significant bump for Jack Doyle (since Donte Moncrief is also out).

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 9. Allen may be able to make his return this week, though he’s not 100 percent. It would obviously hurt the playing time and likely targets of Mr. Jack Doyle, though Doyle should still play quite a bit since Allen is not fully healthy.

Thursday, November 3, 2016, 6:12pm

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Allen may be able to make his return this week. It would obviously hurt the playing time and likely targets of Mr. Jack Doyle.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 8. Allen has a 3-5 week injury (sounds like a high-ankle sprain) and that he’s in the second week of his recovery. As long as Allen remains out, Jack Doyle remains a solid TE play.

Thursday, October 27, 2016, 6:49pm

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) missed practice again Thursday. Colts beat writer George Bremer said that Allen is “looking much better,” but that there are “no guarantees.” Bremer went on to say it was a 3-5 week injury (sounds like a high-ankle sprain) and that he’s in the second week of his recovery. As long as Allen remains out, Jack Doyle remains a solid TE play.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 7. Jack Doyle looks like a premium streaming option. Doyle is already the #9 TE thanks to his two-touchdown Week 1 and the 4-53-1 (4) that he posted against the Texans, who usually smother opposing tight ends. With Allen sidelined against Houston, Doyle played 89% of the snaps, so he should see a ton of playing time against the Colts.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) missed practice again Thursday. Allen is considered “week to week” and is therefore not expected to play this week.
