Report: Dr. James Andrews recommends Rob Gronkowski shouldn’t play vs. Saints

Dr. James Andrews has recommended that Rob Gronkowski not play Sunday against the Saints, according to a report from Pro Football Talk.
Gronkowski, who has not played this season after an offseason filled with multiple surgeries on his back and left forearm, sounded an optimistic note as to whether or not he’d be able to go this week. However, it now appears that Gronkowski will be inactive for his sixth consecutive game.
There is reportedly a divide between Gronkowski’s camp and the team as to his level of readiness when it comes to the state of his forearm, with Gronkowski’s people believing he shouldn’t risk it, while the team says he’s good to go. In addition, a report from WEEI.com on Friday indicated Gronkowski’s camp has “serious concern” about the way Patriots team doctor Thomas Gill handled the procedure. As a result, Andrews — who consulted on Gronkowski’s last arm surgery — was recommended as something of a tiebreaker.
