Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Not spotted at practice

Gronkowski (back) was not spotted at practice Thursday, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Given Gronkowski's injury history, which notably includes past issues with his back, look for the Patriots to proceed cautiously with the tight end in Week 13, with the long haul in mind. Gronkowski still has one more opportunity to join his teammates at practice come Friday, but at this stage his status for Sunday's game against the Rams is decidedly cloudy.
