Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

Gronkowski "very unlikely" to play Sunday

The SportsXchange

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was upgraded to questionable Friday, but is "very unlikely" to play Sunday, according to NFL.com.

Gronkowski has not played since he was injured in the regular-season finale in December 2012. He missed one month and five games last season between Nov. 22 and Dec. 23 with a broken forearm. He had multiple forearm and back surgeries in the offseason, with NFL.com reporting the arm is more of an issue than that back right now.

The Patriots take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. If Gronkowski does not play, he is likely to debut next week at the Atlanta Falcons.

Gronkowski has not participated in full-contact drills and missed most of training camp recovering from the surgeries.
