Impact of Rob Gronkowski return for New England Patriots


 

 

The New England Patriots are about as shaky of a 4-0 team you’ll see, and they are just a few plays away from having multiple losses on their record already.

But alas, they’re without a loss and could be getting back their best offensive weapon and arguably the best player on the team in All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski.

The Patriots may be getting Gronkowski back this week against the Cincinnati Bengals, and after the team just released rookie tight end Zach Sudfeld, the likelihood of him playing looks to be at an all-time high.

Quarterback Tom Brady may also be getting back his only other reliable receiver to go against the Cincinnati this week. Receiver Danny Amendola has only played one full game with Brady, but after Amendola injured his groin in the Week 1 win over the Buffalo Bills, he hasn’t returned to the field since, but he too has a good chance of playing this Sunday.

In 2011, his last healthy season, Gronkowski became the first tight end to lead the league in receiving touchdowns, and broke the receiving yards record by a tight end in a single-season with 1,327 yards.

It still remains unclear as to if or how either player will play.
