After receiving word earlier in the week that New England Patriots star tight end Rob Gronkowski was likely to play Sunday, the Pats — most importantly Dr. James Andrews — are now giving us a different prognosis.

NFL Network's Albert Breer is reporting that Gronk is now unlikely to be a go for the Patriots on Sunday as they face the New Orleans Saints. Pro Football Talk is reporting that Dr. James Andrews has not cleared Gronkowski, and has recommended that he still not play yet.

Tom Curran of CSN New England explained during Friday’s PFT Live that Gronk's Patriots teammates are believed to now have some frustration about the star's return. There weren’t any names said, but the most frustrated teammate appears be No. 12, the guy that throws all the passes.
