07:15 AM ET 09.18 | Though the news on Danny Amendola remains shrouded in some mystery, Rob Gronkowski's status may be clearing. While his timetable for return has been centered around this week, or next, a source today told the Herald the Pats were opting for the conservative route with their Pro Bowl tight end. Since he's gotten back on the field practicing, they're given Gronkowski a little more each day, and each week, upping his load. ... According to the source, the Pats want Gronk to feel "100 percent confident" at being ready to go. To that end, there's been various reports out there today about how close he is to playing Sunday against Tampa. Based on information from the source, at this stage, we'd say it's "less likely" to happen, than more likely Gronk will get the green light.

The word here is that there is no surgery planned for Amendola.

Of course, they're getting their information from Bill Belichick.

Any time a guy breaks his arm on a routine tackle, it's going to be mental for a while. A few catches, hits, and TD's he'll be ready.... Or not.

Belichick isn't going to admit what a horrible signing that was.

Nothing wrong with the idea of signing the dude, just knowing his history should have been enough to leave it as an idea.

The CarFax people should do football players.

Signing him for $8mill per, what they didn't want to give Welker was the dumb part.

Amendola has had a long history of injury issues, everyone knew that wasn't going to change when he got to NE. Bill was just trying to throw salt on the wound of Welker after the verbal jabs Welker took in the media. The problem is that Welker went and signed with the only other QB in the league who could use him as well as Brady......the arch nemesis Manning!

It does't matter if he comes back or not. The Patriots suk and their luck will not continue throughout the season. The POS Gronk will be re-injured within two games anyway. It is time for the Patriots to get rid of Belicheat, Little tommy, and start a complete re-building program. Either way, it will be fun watching them decline over the next few years.

This guy never has anything good to say about the Pat's. Belichick must have kicked his puppy or something.
