The Patriots are in dire need of some reliable receiving targets.
Therefore, they sure hope tight end Rob Gronkowski will be good to go for Week 3's game against the Buccaneers. According to a report from ESPN, Gronkowski has a 50-50 chance at playing this Sunday.
Gronkowski broke his forearm twice last year and has had four offseason surgeries on it. He also had a back procedure done, which is why he's been held out of games thus far.
Without Gronkowski, the Patriots have received no help at the tight end position. Zach Sudfeld has yet to catch a pass and Michael Hoomanawanui isn't much of a receiving threat.
