It was a bittersweet day for the New England Patriots. Despite throttling the Indianapolis Colts at home, they may have lost TE Rob Gronkowski for a while, as he suffered a broken forearm. The injury apparently happened in controversial fashion, as he reportedly did it on the Patriots’ last extra point in a 59-24 blowout. Even though it was just special teams, Gronk should have been no where near the field at that point, and Head Coach Bill Belichick will undoubtedly face heavy criticism for this unfortunate event. In some slightly positive news, it is now being reported that Gronkowski has been informed that the initial recovery timetable will be 4-6 weeks.
After a 31-6 drubbing at the hands of the Redskins, the Eagles may be ready to part ways with their Head Coach of the past 13 years in Andy Reid, who is on the hottest of hot seats after his Eagles were essentially eliminated from playoff contention Sunday as they fell to 3-7.
In some good news for Philly, it has been reported that Michael Vick could be cleared to play by Week 12 after his Week 10 concussion.
