Gronk will play on Sunday


For the sixth straight game, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is listed as questionable with a hip injury.  For the sixth straight game, Gronkowski will be playing.

Per a league source, Gronk will be in the lineup on Sunday against the Bills.

Though it’s not quite the same the Tom Brady showing up as probable with a right shoulder injury for 132 straight weeks (give or take), the trend has emerged.  With “questionable” meaning that the player’s availability is a coin-flip proposition, Gronkowski is on a run of six straight “play” or “don’t play” tosses coming up “play.”

The other questionable tight end — Aaron Hernandez — reportedly won’t play.  Which means that newly-activated tight end Visanthe Shiancoe could get a chance to make an immediate impact in his first game with the Pats.

  1. With this news EJ and the rest of the Bills Laffia# began their yearly winter hibernation to emerge this April at Radio City Music Hall to begin their fantasy journey for the Bills to return to the playoffs for the first time in over a decade.

    Yo Soy Fiesta! Beast Mode Gronk Style !

  2. Everybody knows the injury designations are complete crap. Doubtful is supposed to mean a 25% chance of playing, in reality it is probably about 5%. Teams get grief from the league if they put a player as Probable and then he doesn’t play. If I was an NFL head coach, I think half my roster would be listed as Questionable each week.
