05:28 PM ET 12.01 | New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will not play when the team faces Miami in Week 13, according to Shalize Young of the Boston Globe. Gronkowski also missed the Patriots' last game against the New York Jets. Gronk broke his forearm in Week 10 against Indianapolis, and had surgery to repair the damage shortly thereafter. It appears his recovery will take at least another week. Gronkowski had been putting up huge numbers again before sustaining the injury. Through 10 games, he had already caught 53 passes for 748 yards and 10 touchdowns. His 71 percent catch rate makes him a reliable target for quarterback Tom Brady, especially in the red zone.

Right after the injury they said he'd miss 3 or 4 games. He's missed one, and this makes two. Any chance they'll announce the next one will be 3? Can the intern count that high?
