The New England Patriots could desperately use tight end Rob Gronkowski in the line up. Officially, he is listed as questionable, but Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio suggests that he is closer to doubtful than questionable.

From Pro Football Talk:

Officially, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers after multiple offseason surgeries.  That means he’s technically 50-50 to play.

Unofficially, a league source says it’s still closer to doubtful than questionable that Gronkowski will play.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has also been without wide receiver Danny Amnedola. In last week’s win over the New York Jets Tom Brady threw just one pass to a tight end, it wasn’t caught.

The Patriots are also squaring off the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who boast a revamped defense with shut down corner, Darrelle Revis. That essentially would close out their leading receiver from last week, Julian Edelman, who caught 13 passes for 78 yards in the game. The rest of the team combined for 6 catches against the Jets last week.
