Per multiple media reports, the Patriots won’t have tight end Rob Gronkowski Sunday against the Titans.

Gronkowski, who has missed two of the last three games while battling back and ankle issues, was listed as questionable on the Friday injury report. He expressed optimism Friday when it came to a potential return, but with the bye week right around the corner, it sounds like the team is doing all it can to make sure he’s healthy for the post-Thanksgiving stretch run.
