Gronkowski missed Wednesday's practice due to an illness.
Gronkowski's lengthy injury history made his absence from practice Wednesday notable, but the clarification that he's not banged up and instead is under the weather should ease concerns about his availability for the Week 12 matchup with the Dolphins. Unless the illness is more of a concern than the Patriots are willing to admit, look for the tight end to resume practicing Thursday or Friday. 4:40 pm (EST)
