The New England Patriots will be without its star tight end Rob Gronkowski on Sunday. He will miss the game with ankle and back injuries.

The team is hoping that allowing him to rest — as he also missed last week’s game — that it would allow him to be healthy down the stretch. Before Saturday’s decision, the star said it was going to be a “coaching decision.”

This will be his third game in the last four that his team had played that he has missed. He had been limited all week in practice.

He was listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report.

“It’s been more challenging, just little obstacles in the way,” Gronkowski said Friday, per ESPN’s Mike Reiss. “It’s life. You have to take them on. That’s what I’m doing. Just got to get back to where I need to be and just be myself when I get back, and it will all be good.”

This season, he has 29 passes for 448 yards. He only has one touchdown, which came in the season-opener against the Houston Texans.

“The most important thing is to be contributing to the team and being out there with the boys,” Gronkowski said. “So it’s just working hard every single day, extra days, extra work, doing the best I can. Everything is going smooth, and we’ll just see what happens from here.”
