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. — Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) November 19, 2012 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.
