Tom Brady’s Return To Foxboro
As Tom Brady returns to Gillette Stadium for his first home game of the season, the injury bug continues to give some fans an uneasy feeling. The Cincinnati Bengals are tough enough but what about injuries/illness issues with the Pats?
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Gronk has had stomach flu and is expected to play. Jamie Collins has a hip injury and is not expected to play.
The team put LB Jonathan Freeney and TE Greg Scruggs on Injured Reserve and activated DT Anthony Johnson and DE Geneo Grissom from the practice squad.
