The injury is to the same knee that was reconstructed in January of 2014.

Earlier in the game, Gronkowski had bypassed Shannon Sharpe on the career touchdown lists for tight ends, which means the 26-year-old has more touchdowns than any tight end currently in the Hall of Fame.

The Patriots lost elusive satellite back Dion Lewis in Week 9, playmaking receiver Julian Edelman Jerseys in Week 10 and saw Edelman’s replacement cheap jerseys, Danny Amendola Jerseys, leave with a knee injury in Week 11. Even as attrition began taking its toll on the AFC’s best team, Patriots fans could rest assured that their team remained a Super Bowl favorite as long as Tom Brady Jerseys and Gronkowski escaped nfl jerseys for sale the wrath of the football gods.

Gronkowski’s importance cannot be overstated. He has been the NFL’s most valuable non-quarterback since entering the league in 2010, anchoring New England’s run game and aerial attack.

The Patriots have averaged over 32 points through Gronkowski’s 76 games, the highest mark for any player in NFL history.

With Gronkowski sidelined by arm and knee wholesale nfl jerseys injuries, the Patriots lost to the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI, were upset by the Ravens in the AFC Championship Game and fell to the Broncos in January of 2014.

If he’s lost for the season, the AFC is up for grabs.

Giants co-owner John Mara said offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo and defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo will be interviewed for the Giants’ head coaching position. McAdoo’s interview was completed Tuesday, Rapoport reported. The Giants have put in interview requests for Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase, Jaguars offensive line coach Doug Marrone and Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott, Rapoport added. Marrone will interview with the Giants on Saturday, Rapoport reported.

Mara was asked if he would trade a draft pick for a coach. “We really haven’t had that discussion yet but I wouldn’t completely rule that out,” he said. “There are a lot of good candidates out there.”

Cleveland Browns: The Browns fired coach Mike Pettine shortly after the team’s Week 17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Pettine was 10-22 as Cleveland’s coach. Ray Farmer, the embattled general manager, was also relieved of his duties after meeting with the team’s ownership hours before the season-ending loss.

The Browns have lined up several head coaching interviews. Adam Gase, Doug Marrone, Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin, Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther and Sean McDermott each have interviews scheduled, Rapoport reported. The Browns also are interested in interviewing Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson, according to NFL Media’s Rand Getlin.

The Browns have named former New York Mets executive Paul DePodesta as Chief Strategy Officer.

San Francisco 49ers: The 49ers have fired coach Jim Tomsula after just one season with the team. The Niners went 5-11 under Tomsula. Former Broncos and Redskins coach Mike Shanahan and ex-Eagles coach Chip Kelly have expressed interest in the job. NFL Media’s Michael Silver reported that the 49ers have requested an interview with Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. The team requested to speak with Bills running back coach Anthony Lynn, Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the situation.

Niners CEO Jed York announced Trent Baalke will remain the general manager.

Philadelphia Eagles: The Eagles didn’t wait until the offseason to show coach Chip Kelly the door. The coach was fired five days before the team’s regular-season finale victory against the Giants. After two 10-win seasons, Kelly’s offense turned stale and predictable this year. Ultimately, his grab for personnel power proved to be his undoing more than his X’s and O’s.

The Eagles interviewed Adam Gase and will interview interim coach Pat Shurmur for the head coaching vacancy. Teryl Austin likely will be interviewed later in the week, Rapoport added. Mr. RapSheet also reported that Gase impressed the Eagles in his first interview and will interview again this weekend.

Miami Dolphins Jerseys: Dan Campbell, the fiery interim, will get an interview, according to Rapoport. However, NFL Media’s Jeff Darlington reported the team does not considered him a legitimate candidate for head coach. They could keep him on as a tight ends coach and associate head coach.

Per Rapoport, the Dolphins have real interest in ex-Falcons coach Mike Smith Jerseys, who interviewed for the position on Monday. Miami team executives are performing background work with former coaches and players.

Miami has interviewed former Raiders, Broncos and Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan and Teryl Austin. The Dolphins also will interview Adam Gase and Anthony Lynn. Rapoport reported the Dolphins will interview Marrone as well. Darlington reported the Dolphins have requested to interview Hue Jackson. If granted, the interview could happen early next week.

The Dolphins have named former college scouting director Chris Grier as their new general manager. Grier replaces Dennis Hickey, with whom the team parted ways before the season finale.

Tennessee Titans: Interim coach Mike Mularkey didn’t win much, and with quarterback Marcus Mariota paired with the top pick in the 2016 draft, this should be a prime opening. That said, the Titans are expected to consider Mularkey as a legitimate candidate, according to Rapoport. The team also has confirmed Mularkey is a candidate for the permanent position. The organization has strong feelings for him and how he’s handled Mariota. They also know it wouldn’t be a popular hire for their fan base, which might make it a longshot move.

Titans general manager Ruston Webster’s contract was not renewed, the team announced Monday. Per NFL Media’s Albert Breer, the Titans may be targeting Ravens assistant GM Eric DeCosta for the job. One of the first interviews for the job will go to Giants vice president of player evaluation Marc Ross, Rapoport reported.

On thin ice

Jim Caldwell, Detroit Lions: The fate of Caldwell is in the hands of the unhired new general manager. There is no way of knowing if he’ll return until his boss is hired, despite players speaking out for his return. nike nfl jersey size chart But inside the organization, it does not feel like Caldwell is set to be fired. The Ford family has strong feelings for him, as he’s quickly earned their respect. The Lions went 6-2 in the second half of the season.

The Lions requested an interview with Will McClay, the Cowboys assistant director of player personnel, for their vacant GM position, but McClay decided to stay put, Rapoport reported.

The Lions will interview co-personnel director cheap jerseys Trent Kirchner and Patriots pro scouting director Bob Quinn for their GM vacancy, Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the plans.

Coaches to watch

Sean Payton, New Orleans Saints: A long-standing topic of discussion this season, Payton has made no secret of his openness to consider other options. Speaking with people informed of his thinking, he hasn’t ruled out leaving New Orleans, with the hope that it’s a clean and respectful break from the organization he took to great heights. The Saints would part ways with Payton in exchange for a second-round draft pick, Rapoport reports.

Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis met on Monday evening to discuss compensation, Rapoport reported. Payton has privately discussed his interest in the Chargers opening, and he’s let it be known he’d be interested in the 49ers’ job, Rapoport reported.

Safe

Chuck Pagano, Indianapolis Colts Jerseys: The expectation was Pagano would be out of Indianapolis. But a day after the Colts season ended, the team announced Pagano agreed to a four-year contract extension to stay with wholesale nfl jerseys the team. A day later, though, the team fired defensive coordinator Greg Manusky, Rapoport reported.

The team confirmed general manager Ryan Grigson will also return after a lengthy meeting with Colts team owner Jim Irsay. Irsay added in Monday’s news conference that Pagano pushed to have Grigson get an extension. The two are now “contractually tied” together, as Irsay put it. Although the relationship between Grigson and Pagano was described as toxic as various times during the season, Rapoport was told that it was closer to two passionate professionals with mutual respect.

Mike McCoy, San Diego Chargers: The Chargers have decided to retain the head coach.

Though McCoy’s job is safe, Rapoport adds that the Chargers are expected to make some changes to its staff. The team will not retain offensive coordinator Frank Reich, Rapoport reports. The Chargers also confirmed the release of five assistant coaches. Defensive coordinator John Pagano, who has been in that position since 2012, is also at risk, Rapoport adds.

Jeff Fisher, St. Louis Rams: By any measure, Fisher should be on the hot seat. He hasn’t delivered a winning record in four seasons with the Rams. It’s an offense-first league, and the Rams’ offense gets worse by the year. Fisher has six winning seasons in 21 years as an NFL head coach, but Rapoport reported before the season ended that both Fisher and general manager Les Snead are expected back. They both have strong organizational support from owner Stan Kroenke. The strong finish to this season, with three wins in four games to get 7-9, also helps. Fisher also has strong ties with reporters, which tends to keep the criticism of his team to a minimum. There isn’t a fan outcry to get rid of him and the looming potential move to Los Angeles complicates things.

Gus Bradley, Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys: The team announced that Bradley will be back for a fourth season, establishing clear “win or else” expectations for improvement.

Jason Garrett, Dallas Cowboys: This was no surprise, but owner Jerry Jones confirmed there was “no thought” of replacing Garrett after a 4-12 season.

Rex Ryan and Doug Whaley, Buffalo Bills Jerseys: Bills owner Terry Pegula announced before Week 17 that Ryan and his general manager would be back together in 2016.

Adam Gase: Ryan Tannehill has skill set we want

INDIANAPOLIS — The chasm between the Ryan Tannehill Jerseys believers and nonbelievers is Grand Canyon-sized.

On Wednesday, new Dolphins coach Adam Gase stood on the advocate’s side, shouting deep praise for his quarterback.

“He has the skill set you are looking for,” Gase said at the NFL Scouting Combine. “Really, it’s going to be youth nfl jerseys about, how do things go starting in the spring? How does he feel? What do we have to do to adjust to help him? It’s not easy to talk about now, it’s got to be more of seeing him. How does he do things, what’s his process?”

Gase stressed that the process of evaluating and tailoring the offense takes time.

“It’s not going to be like all the sudden in two weeks we’re going to be like ‘alright, I got it.'” Gase said. “It’s the entire spring. It’s going to take training camp. It’s going to take regular season games. This is not going to be one of those things where I’m going to have a great feel for him right away. We’re going to have to go through a little bit of process, there is going to be bumps in the road. But that’s football.”

Much has been made about previous coaching staffs not allowing Tannehill to change plays at the line of scrimmage wholesale nfl jerseys. Gase said Tannehill will have the ability to get into the proper play, but noted that the entire offense needs to have the understanding in order to make those checks.

“That is the one good thing about this offense, it’s really on the players, how much they can handle,” he said. “It takes the entire group to understand what’s going on because the quarterback can’t do it if nobody else knows what to do as well.

“It’s something we eventually got to in Chicago. I thought Jay (Cutler) did a good job of handling that, that was something different that he hadn’t really done a whole bunch of. But the quarterback in this system does have the ability to move in and out of plays. It’s going to be: How much can our group handle? Early, it’s probably not going to be as much as it will be later.”

Gase was hired specifically to get Tannehill to the next level as a signal-caller. Putting the quarterback in the right offense to succeed will be the first step. Even Gase doesn’t know what exactly that will look like yet.

Other notes from Gase:

1. Jordan Cameron Jerseys has been suggested as one possible cut candidate given his salary. Gase said the tight end is an important position in his offense and believes Cameron is a “great fit for what we do.”

2. Gase sidestepped questions about Olivier Vernon Jerseys getting the franchise tag and other potential cut candidates, saying the team is “still going through the process.”

3. The coach pitched for free-agent-to-be Lamar Miller Jerseys to return, gushing over the running back’s ability and saying Miller “knows how I feel about him as a player.”

Gase added that he couldn’t put a number on how many carries Miller would get in his offense, but said the running back excels in all phases: Pass blocking, receiving and rushing.

Dolphins general manager Chris Grier told reporters he will meet with Miller’s agent this week during the combine.
