The Buccaneers make their final decision on Rob Gronkowski’s availability for Sunday’s game against the Patriots.


Rob Gronkowski will not be making the trip to New England after all.

Gronkowski will miss his homecoming game against the New England Patriots due to a rib injury, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The tight end for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots.

$ According to Nick Shook of the NFL’s official website, the veteran tight end was listed as doubtful in the team’s injury report on Friday, October 1st. Due to the injury, he did not practice all week.

The 32-year-old tight end was injured in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Rams after taking a jarring hit. Despite the fact that he left the game for a short time, he soon returned. With four touchdown receptions this season, Gronkowski leads the Buccaneers in touchdown receptions. Because of his absence, only Tom Brady and Antonio Brown will be able to attend the New England Patriots’ homecoming game on Sunday night.

Against the Patriots, either Cameron Brate or O.J. Howard will try to break into the starting lineup. Clean Bowled News
