Updated Report: Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski not expected to play vs. Cardinals



Things just got very interesting from a Patriots and a fantasy football standpoint.

Per Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski did not take the team charter to Arizona on Friday afternoon.

One thing to keep in mind though, is that the Patriots uncharacteristically traveled a day earlier than usual. In the past when this has happened, injured players have stayed behind an extra day to get treatment in Foxboro, then traveled the following day.

Tom E. Curran of Comcast Sports responded to Daniels’ tweet with that same sentiment:

Curran is well-respected and in-the-know  on the Patriots’ beat, and the Boston Herald’s Jeff Howe reported yesterday that Gronkowski would play on Sunday — so only time will tell.

As we mentioned in our Daily Stock Report, if Gronkowski is downgraded to OUT on late Sunday afternoon after your TE2 has played, some names to consider would be Steelers TE Jesse James and 49ers TE Vance McDonald — both whom play on Monday night.
