NFL: New England Patriots-Training Camp

The New England Patriots are normally the quietest team in the NFL when it comes to their fabled injury report.

Bill Belichick usually puts the whole roster on the report, and he keeps his players’ status for Sunday close to the vest.  In what has been the norm around Foxborough since the start of the league year, The Patriots are embroiled in some sort of controversy involving a player.

This time it’s the playing status of star tight end Rob Gronkowski.

The Boston Herald is reporting that Gronkowski and the Patriots have differing opinions on whether Gronk should play against the Falcons on Sunday.

New England is rushing Gronkowski back, and Gronk surprisingly doesn’t think he’s ready.

Gronkowski, who broke the same forearm twice last season and underwent back surgery in June, basically came to the conclusion that  he would return in Week 6.

Sources say the Patriots expected Gronkowski to return as early as week 2.

Those in the know say Gronkowski simply doesn’t want to return until he feels he’s 100%
