Gronkowski, Solder, Cooper Won’t Play

Three Patriots offensive starters don't fly with team Friday; not expected to play Sunday

0

The Patriots were already without Tom Brady heading into this Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale. Now, the prospects of a victory seem even bleaker due to the latest injury news regarding three starters on offense.

Reportedly not joining the team on Friday’s flight to Arizona were TE Rob Gronkowski, OT Nate Solder, and OG Jonathan Cooper. All three players have been dealing with injuries, and it is reported that none of them are expected to suit up on Sunday in Arizona.

With this news, Martellus Bennett, Cameron Fleming, and Ted Karras would seemingly be in line for increased roles at tight end, tackle, and guard, respectively. This could make things very difficult for Jimmy Garoppolo, who was already facing the daunting task of making his first NFL start on the road against one of the best teams in the NFL.

For further updates and information leading up to Sunday’s tilt against the Cardinals, and all games around the NFL, stay tuned to the Armchair All-Americans.

I’m Andrew Cabatingan, and I only know three things for sure. One, any NFL kicker not named Stephen Gostkowski (GOATkowski) is absolute garbage and cannot be trusted. Two, Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback there ever was or ever will be. Three, I am prone to outbursts of Patriots homerism and any hyperbolic statements I make should be taken as sarcasm. If you’re looking for real facts about me, I suppose I would start by saying I am a sophomore at Northeastern University, I love all Boston sports, everything Game of Thrones (kudos to you if you can find the reference I made earlier), reading, singing, and arguing with strangers on the Internet. I hope that any preexisting bias due to any of this does not begin to seep into my writing, but if it does, I have the peace of mind of knowing that some snarky commenter will probably point it out.
