How are you feeling about the New England Patriots' chances Thursday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?

Well, the odds just got a lot tougher.

The NFL Network reported that Rob Gronkowski is not expected to play due to a thigh injury.

It marks the second time the tight end has been hurt this season, as he suffered a groin injury during a game versus New Orleans a few weeks ago.

Despite the injury, the Patriots went on to win the game.

Fans are hoping for the same turn out when the face Tampa.
