The "sometime after their Week 11 bye" indicates that he's no lock to be back on the field in Week 12.

This weekend, they will look to tack another game on to their six-game win streak against the Tennessee Titans (4-4) in Nissan Stadium.

Overall, it has not been a successful season for the 29-year-old - even as the Patriots lead the AFC East with a 7-2 record.

The New England Patriots are taking an extra-cautious approach with their star tight end.

New England rested Gronkowski against the Packers in Week 9 and still managed to produce plenty of offense and win the game pretty handily, topping Aaron Rodgers' team by 14 points.

That's not to say this is a freebie for the Patriots. New England ranks No. 5 in the National Football League in points per game, scoring over 30 in five of their nine games.

Plus, for Gronkowski, it's more important to keep him healthy over the long haul in what he's called a "challenging" season so far. "That's what I'm doing and I've got to get back to where I need to be, be myself when I get back and it'll all be good".
