While the running back’s return is looking promising, it’s still unclear when tight end Rob Gronkowski could see action again.
Schefter suggests that resting Gronkowski this week, with a bye week ensuing, the all-star tight end would get “two weeks of rest for the price of one.” He went on to say that Gronk has “really been week-to-week with back and ankle injuries.” So, playing it safe might be what the Patriots choose to do.
As for Michel, Schefter tweeted yesterday that he “just needs a good week of practice with no setbacks,” but he’s “on track” and “likely” to return this coming weekend.
After missing the past two games with a knee injury, Patriots’ RB Sony Michel is likely to return Sunday vs. Titans, per source. Just needs a good week of practice with no setbacks, but on track.
