According to Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick told the media that tight end Rob Gronkowski still isn’t ready to play.
BB on Gronkowski's progress: he did more last week than he did the week before…we'll take it day to day. he's moving along, not ready yet

The Patriots can only hope that they’ll get Gronkowski back in time for the divisional round. That’s of course if they get past the wild card round, which I believe they will.
