We already knew that Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski had been ruled out from playing vs. the Falcons in Week 4.

Even though it was originally thought Gronkowski and the team were targeting his return for this very week, he now reportedly won't be back for another TWO weeks, according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.

Glazer also reported that Gronkowski has yet to make his 2013 debut because of back problems, not because of his forearm issue.

Obviously, the Patriots would like him back next week vs. the Bengals instead of in two weeks vs. the Saints, but Glazer reported that Gronkowski is the one calling the shots in this situation.

There was also speculation Sunday morning that Gronkowski's father was playing a big role in the decision. Which, if true, can't make the Patriots very happy.
