    The Patriots and tight end Rob Gronkowski may not be on the same page about his return from back surgery. Would the team pressure Gronkowski to return to the field? Surely every team wants to see a return on its investment and the Patriots are obviously a better team with Gronkowski on the field. The Boston Herald reports that Gronkowski’s camp and the team have a disagreement over his availability for Sunday night’s game against the Falcons. Those who have watched him the past two weeks insist Gronkowski looks like he's absolutely ready to play and are baffled why he has not yet appeared in a game this season. The Falcons declared running back Steven Jackson as out, and former Patriots cornerback Asante Samuel was added to their report as questionable. However, it seems unlikely that Amendola will be ready to go; he appeared to be moving better in practice this week, but there is a lot of stopping/starting/cutting involved at his position, and that requires healthy groin muscles.
