Through five games Rob Gronkowski is third in league in receiving yards among tight ends with 318

With top tight end Rob Gronkowski not participating fully in practice, and top backup Dwayne Allen acknowledging some early growing pains with non-verbal communication with quarterback Tom Brady, the New England Patriots added a layer of depth at the position on Thursday by signing Will Tye to their practice squad. He was on the practice field Friday and expects to play against the Jets. "Whatever coaches call, or whatever plays they have me in, I'll be ready to roll".

Gronkowski, speaking to reporters Friday, said he's "good to go" for the AFC East rivalry game after missing last Thursday's game with a thigh injury.

"Unfortunately it was a quick turnaround game Thursday night, and it just wasn't ready to roll".

"I'm good to go", Gronk said. "It is what it is". I took care of myself throughout that whole time and took care of my body and now I'm ready to play. "Hopefully that doesn't happen again. Whatever coaches call, I'll be ready".

Tye, who was with the Jets for the first three games of the season in the absence of Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who was suspended for the first two games of the year, caught four passes for a total of 38 yards for NY.
