The chain of reports regarding the broken arm suffered by Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has included various accounts of his expected absence. The latest comes from our pal Tom Curran of CSN New England.

Per Curran, Gronkowski will miss four to eight weeks after undergoing surgery to repair the break.

The earliest, then, that Gronkowski could return would be December 23, against the Jaguars. The following week, the Pats wrap up the regular season against the Dolphins.
