This Sunday the Houston Texans face up against the New England Patriots in Sunday Night Football performance.
The Texans who were on a four game winning streak, were defeated last Sunday, in Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills with the score of 21-30.
The Patriots narrowly lost against the Eagles in week 13, 35-28 without Rob Gronkowski aka the Gronk.
This week, agains the Texans, it appears that the Patriots will have the Gronk back and although we will still have J.J. Watt, Watt has apparently broken his hand during practice this week.
The broken hand isn’t the only injuries that Watt has faced this season… Watt has been nursing a groining injury, back issues and illnesses, but as Romeo Crennel said, Watt will have to “adapt his game” considering the fact that he can not fully grip with the hand that dones the cast.
As for the Gronk, he hasn’t been to practice since they played the Broncos on Nov. 29th when the Broncos snuck past the Patriots in OT in a win of 24-30.
Gronk went out with a knee injury in that game and has been wearing a brace while healing.
Their head coach seems optimistic about Gronk being back on the field.
