Robert Kraft will not attend the NFL’s annual meetings this week in New Orleans.

The Patriots’ owner will miss the meetings ‘€œdue to a private family medical matter,’€ according to a team release. Club president Jonathan Kraft and Bill Belichick will both be in New Orleans this week.

Robert Kraft is viewed as one of the most influential owners in the NFL. He is a member of five committees — including the Management Council Executive Committee — and is considered a key voice in the ongoing labor negotiations with the NFLPA.
