Rob Gronkowski Dedicates Patriots-Titans Game To Family Friend Who Died (Photo)

The New England Patriots’ game against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday will have an extra meaning for Rob Gronkowski.

The Patriots tight end missed practice Friday, reportedly because a close family friend recently died. Ahead of New England’s Week 15 game at Gillette Stadium, Gronkowski took to Facebook to post a simple but moving tribute.

Patriots-Titans will kick off at 1 p.m. ET.
