Tom Brady’s not around for the next month and the injury reporting system doesn’t allow for a dozen probables any more, so somebody on the Patriots has to be the injury question of the week.
Via Phill Perry of CSNNE.com, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was limited in yesterday’s practice with a hamstring issue.
Gronkowski didn’t practice Sunday either, so being held out of parts of the fully padded practice is something to note in advance of this week’s game against the Cardinals.
The Patriots covered themselves this offseason, signing veteran Martellus Bennett, but that’s not the same.
“There’s only one Gronkowski, though,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. “There’s a bunch of other tight ends but there’s one Gronk. He’s a different animal when it comes to defending him.”
