NFL Injury Report:
New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski had screws
inserted into his broken forearm yesterday morning and says he hopes to return
in three to four weeks when the team takes on the Houston Texans and San
Francisco 49ers in back-to-back games, reports Albert Breer of NFL.com.
Gronkowski had screws inserted in his forearm at MGH this AM. He'll want to play during that Texans-Niners turn. That'd be awfully quick.

While this may be Gronk’s desired timeframe, it’s been
reported that a more likely period for recover is four to six weeks. The dynamic tight end sustained the injury Sunday during an extra-point attemptlate in the Patriots’ romp over the Indianapolis Colts.
With their upcoming game on Thanksgiving Day, the Patriots
released a Monday injury report. While they didn’t hold practice yesterday,
they did indicate who they believe would and wouldn’t have participated.
Wide receivers Wes Welker and Brandon Lloyd and tight end
Aaron Hernandez continue to be listed as limited in practice. Welker and Lloyd
were able to play against the Colts, and while Hernandez was sidelined again due
to an ankle injury, he could return Thursday against the New York Jets.

Tom Brady found Rob Gronkowski seven times for 137 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday afternoon in a 59-24 thrashing of the Indianapolis Colts at Gillette Stadium. It will be the last time that Brady and Gronkowski hook up for a few weeks at least, though.

There is no doubt Rob Gronkowski’s broken forearm, which will keep him out four to six weeks, will hurt the Patriot’s offense, but the team will continue to produce without him. They have too many weapons not too. Yes, Gronk is a major part of the offense, but other players will step up and produce. Aaron Hernandez should be back from injury this week, and if Julian Edelman...

Not sure the Patriots deserve mad love with the loss of Rob Gronkowski, but they’re still playing well. The confidence in the Texans took a huge hit by giving up 34 to the Jaguars this weekend, but I’m not going to look too deeply into it. They still won right?

1. Losing Gronkowski is a killer for Patriots.
Bill Belichick always finds a way. When Randy Moss became a nuisance in 2010 and the Patriots eventually decided to trade him, Belichick revamped his offense to feature rookie tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez. Instead of attacking teams vertically with Moss, New England started going down the seam to its tight ends while...
