... a source indicated that Gronkowski (back/ankle) is not expected to suit up against the Titans. The Pats seem to be hoping that some rest in November will allow Gronkowski to recapture his top form down the stretch.
With Gronkowski unlikely to play in Week 10 and the team on a Week 11 bye, he’ll have 27 days off before potentially returning to action in Week 12 at the Jets.
Gronk is travelling with the team to Nashville.
This may actually be good news for teams with Gronk. If the Patriots are committing to getting him as close to fully healthy as possible, he could be much closer to fully healthy for the fantasy playoffs than would have been the case if he continued to try to play through back and ankle injuries.
