Gronkowski’s availability will be Belichick’s call


Amid reports that Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will play on Sunday, a league source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that it’s still not definite that he’ll go.

Ultimately, the decision will be made by coach Bill Belichick.  If the decision has been made, Belichick has not shared it with anyone, yet.

Gronkowski has missed six games with back and forearm injuries.  Officially listed as questionable, he received medical clearance in recent days to play.

It’s a safe guess that Gronkowski will play.  But at this point, we’re told, it’s just a guess.  And it makes sense to lean in the direction that he’ll play.  The real answer will become more clear, one way or the other, in the next two hours.

Whether Gronkowski is among them, 46 Patriots will take on 46 Jets at 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday.

    “It’s a safe guess that Gronkowski will play. But at this point, we’re told, it’s just a guess. ”

    Well, that’s one way to completely assure in one sentence that you’ll be right either way. If Gronk plays, you can point to stressing that it’s a “safe” call that he’d play. If he doesn’t, you can indicate that you minimized reliance that he’d play as “just a guess.”

    He had 8 catches for almost 120 yards. I told you he wouldn’t score a TD. But he will he will have 2 Tds the next game.

    I’m laughing at this prediction, because my previous posts about another blogs were getting deleted because I was dropping knowledge.

    So I offered this little prediction and BOOM!

    Remember this name…
