One of the Patriots’ top players was part of the club’s traveling party on Saturday, while another key player stayed home.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski was among the Patriots making the trip to play the Jets on Sunday, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reported.

However, cornerback Aqib Talib did not make the trip, the Herald said.

Talib was listed as doubtful for Week Seven with a hip flexor injury. Earlier this week, PFT reported Talib was expected to miss the Jets game.

Gronkowski (back/forearm) is listed as questionable for Sunday, though he has been cleared to return to the playing field. The Pro Bowl tight end has missed the Patriots’ first six regular-season games.

    I’m hoping Gronk’s presence might produce more points than Talib’s absence might allow.

    We’ll see about that.

    Interested to see how the Pats Defense looks without their best CB, LB and DL.

    Gronk should listen to his own body and not listen to the dopey doctors that had him play too early after his broken arm and high ankle sprain. Gronk had back surgery only four months ago and it is goofy to have him crash into 300 lb men at full speed now. Personally I want to watch Gronk play another 5 good years and not ruin his career prematurely.

    Should I start Gronk or Jordan Cameron this week?

    “”I hear the pats only travel players who play on away games, is this correct?””

    Yes you are correct!

    Damn! To start him or not to start him? That is the question.

    As long as Talib is healthy after the bye week…I’m ok with it.
