Report: Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski will not play against the Dolphins

New, comments

The Patriots All Pro will get another week of rest

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will not play in week 2 against the Miami Dolphins due to his hamstring injury, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Gronkowski was a scratch in week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals and back-up Martellus Bennett became a large part of the game plan in his place. Look for Bennett to play a larger role this week, too.

Additionally, we have to wonder about Gronkowski’s potential availability for week 3. The Patriots play the Texans on Thursday Night Football, so there’s a very real chance that Gronkowski will not be back until week 4.
