Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who has been dealing with ankle and back injuries for a few weeks now, will not play Sunday against the Titans. This according to Ian Rapoport.
The move is a precautionary one they hope will allow Gronk to heal for a strong second half run.
#Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back, ankle) won’t play Sunday vs #Titans, source said. The team is taking the smart, cautious approach by making sure he’s back after the bye at full strength to close the season strong.

The best tight end in the game is a dangerous weapon that the Patriots know will serve them better in the postseason if he’s healthy.
Expect New England to roll and be that much more dangerous with Gronk at 100 percent. It’s what the Patriots do.
