Gronkowski, who did not play in any preseason games, has been a limited participant in practice since a joint training camp practice with the Chicago Bears on August 15. I want to be out there so bad. The Patriots just traded for him from the Eagles and this was his first week in New England. Curran and ESPN's Adam Schefter later confirmed the All-Pro tight end did not make the trip.

If Gronkowski is not ready to go, expect Martellus Bennett to be featured more in the offense. For me, I just kind of take that same approach with Rob - two guys, two bros pushing each other to get better.

Gronkowski has been a limited participant in practice this week and when asked if he was 100 percent, he answered, "No, I'm not".

While the Patriots will play with Jimmy Garoppolo a the quarterback position, the team would likely find a way to have another option for Gronkowski.

Harbor should have seen action with Gronkowski's injury, but clearly the Patriots are not impressed with his progression to this point.
