The New England Patriots head to Chicago and take on the Bears today at 1:00 PM EST. They’ll have to do it without their big tight end who was just downgraded to out.

According to Mike Reiss, Gronk is expected to return to action next week against the Bears. Gronk wasn’t on the team flight because of a back injury he’s been nursing, according to multiple reports. Gronkowski has also been dealing with an ankle injury.
Another season with more frustration out of Gronk’s playing status. I don’t hate him for it. Gronk isn’t injury prone, he’s susceptible to injury. Big difference. Gronk is a beast that refuses to go down, which can lead to injuries. He won’t change, he is who he is, and that’s why I love him, but man, I’ll be lying if I said it wasn’t always frustrating. Get healthy and get back on the field big man!
