Surgery to repair Rob Gronkowski's broken forearm has been done. A 4 to 8 week timetable is what he's looking at for return. #patriotsTalk

Yeah, a ton of posts on this, but a ton of news coming out on this. That eight week bump is kind of concerning. That might mean he won't be able to come back unless the Patriots in the AFC Championship game or Superbowl. Really hoping the Pats can somehow get that first round bye.
At least Hernandez is expected to return on Thursday, though he and Gronk play two dramatically different positions despite both being tight ends.
