Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski didn't make the trip to Buffalo, per source.
Not a surprise. Zack Sudfeld will get the start in his place and is a mid-TE1 option this week against the Bills. Reports earlier this week said Sudfeld could get between 30-40 snaps, which is about half of the expected total. We actually rank Sudfeld 5th among our TEs for Week 1, so we think that's enough work to make a fantasy impact.
