11:28 AM ET 07.23 | The New England Patriots have placed tight end Rob Gronkowski on the physically unable to perform list, which will hold him out of action until the sixth week of the NFL season. That means when the season starts Tom Brady will be without his five leading receivers from 2012 for the first six weeks of the season. Wes Welker signed with the Denver Broncos, Danny Woodhead is with the San Diego Chargers, Aaron Hernandez is in jail awaiting trial for murder charges and Brandon Lloyd is a free agent. Without their top targets, the Patriots will be relying on free agent Danny Amendola in a big way.

The sixth week? I thought he was hoping to be ready for the beginning of the season.

Yikes. Not looking good for Pats fans.

This is going to be a horrible season :(

Still an 11-5 team IMO but their SB days are done.

11-5 because 6-0 in that bad Division is likely. The Dolphins could surprise though?

It's a good time for some rookie to break out and show his stuff.

I miss the Colts/Pats rivalry from 2003-2010. Tom vs Peyton, that is the best of times. Pats kicked our butt a lot but the 2006 Title Game was my favorite game of all-time, the 4th and 2 game was awesome as well. Peyton manned up in both. Regarding Gronk I thought he would be ready for opening day?

Just how many challenges can one team face in one season? I expect to see a bald Belichick when the regular season begins.

He's on the active PUP list for training camp, not on the reserve PUP list for the regular season.

Losing Welker is worse and not only that Peyton gets him. Broncos might go 19-0 just kidding but you never know?? If they lose Von Miller for the 1st 4 games I still don't think it matters early in the season because he will be back anyway.

That was my understanding, too. Same as Adrian Peterson last year.

How dare you dispute the veracity of a FanSided.com piece!

Serious bad mojo. Buffalo is going to wreck them week one to set the tone. Bad for Pats fans!

Tebow to the rescue!!!

...just kidding.

Tebow will play tight end. Just watch.

July 24, 2013  08:54 AM ET

How about picking up Terrell Owens?

What do you base this on? Can he catch? Run routes? We know he struggles reading defenses so at best he'd be a small, relatively slow receiver with suspect hands.
