The New England Patriots will likely be without Rob Gronkowski on Sunday.

Gronkowski has a back injury that was added to the Patriots injury report on Friday.

For the Bears, outside linebacker Khalil Mack, who suffered a sprained right ankle Sunday against the Dolphins, is questionable.

Gronkowski didn't travel with the team to Chicago and will miss his first game of the 2018.

Though Gronk is a superstar and one of the best tight ends of all time, the Patriots have fared well in his absence, going 23-8 straight up and 19-11-1 against the spread. Those numbers aren't especially prolific by his high standards, but Gronkowski's importance to the offense was evident when Tom Brady went his way in the final, critical moments of the Chiefs game last Sunday. Without the All-Pro, the Patriots would play a combination of Dwayne Allen and Jacob Hollister, who was also questionable due to a hamstring injury, against the NFL's top-ranked defense by DVOA.
