Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is done for the day with a back injury. But that doesn’t mean he’ll be done for the next week, or beyond.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the initial indication is that the back injury is not serious. He’s currently not expected to miss any more time, beyond today’s game against the Jets.

Of course, that can change. For now, that’s the update regarding the latest injury for a guy who has had plenty of them.

Gronkowski missed last week’s contest against the 49ers with a chest injury suffered two weeks ago against the Seahawks.

The Patriots host the Rams next Sunday.

  1. Always better to err on the side of caution when it comes to an important piece of the puzzle like Gronkowski.

    …is going to Canton on the 1st ballot. How about your guy?

    That’s what I thought.

  3. While some players will sit out for ONLY an infected hang nail or paper cut, Gronk loves this type of bruising punishment…that being said – I think it’s finally caught up with him, NO I’m not saying he’s done – absolutely not, just saying he’s probably being told to take it easy down the stretch & not be too reckless on the field.
