Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Not expected to play Sunday

Gronkowski (back/ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans but isn't expected to play, Kevin Duffy of the Boston Herald reports.

The team has yet to make an official announcement, but it appears the Patriots want to be cautious with their star tight end, particularly with a Week 11 bye in mind. If Gronkowski is ruled out for another week, look for Dwayne Allen to start at the position. Allen has done little with his extended opportunities in Gronkowski's stead, catching just one pass in the last three weeks despite playing over 50 snaps in two of those contests.
