The Kansas City Chiefs’ house cleaning might be the Patriots’ gain. With offensive coordinator Brian Daboll having been fired in K.C., the former Patriots defensive assistant and wide receivers coach is returning to New England, according to ESPN.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick is providing no update on injured tight end Rob Gronkowski.
