Patriots Tight End Rob Gronkowski Ruled Out Against Bengals

Jim Rogash

Both the Bengals and the Patriots are limping into Sunday's big matchup at Paul Brown Stadium. One of New England's big stars won't be available for Tom Brady.

Neither the Cincinnati Bengals nor the New England Patriots will have a full arsenal at their disposal for their big matchup this Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium. Recently, Adam Schefter of ESPN dropped some news about a couple of the the game's big stars and their statuses for the game.

Gronkowski has yet to play in 2013 because of back and forearm surgeries this offseason. His status was up in the air for this week and it looked as if he would suit up for this first time against the Bengals. Even without "Gronk", the Patriots have somehow managed to jump out of the gates at 4-0. Though Danny Amendola is questionable, recent reports have it sounding like he might play for the first time in three weeks.
