12:39 PM ET 12.21 | New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will not be available to play in Week 16's meeting with the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to a report by Shalise Young of the Boston Globe on Friday afternoon. Gronkowski has not played since breaking his forearm against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 11. The 23-year-old tight end sustained the injury while blocking on a New England extra point attempt. Gronkowski registered seven receptions on the day for 137 yards and two touchdowns. The Patriots ultimately won the game by a final score of 59-24.

They won't need him this week anyways. I could play TE for them and they'd still win by 20

The Globe still seems upset about Gronk being in during a blowout. No doubt Belichick agrees with them. He's probably calling up the writer right now to apologize because Bill understands that the media knows more about football than anybody.

The Jags have pack it in for the season, so they don't need him anyway to win on Sunday.
