TE: Rob Gronkowski

Rob Gronkowski (ribs) won't play in Week 5 against the Dolphins.

As expected. Gronkowski reportedly fractured his ribs in Tampa Bay's Week 3 loss to the Rams and will be sidelined for "multiple weeks." Cam Brate ran 33 routes to O.J. Howard's 16 on Sunday, finishing third in targets (6) behind Mike Evans (12) and Chris Godwin (11), and remains the tight end to usage-based TE(2) to chase for the Bucs in the interim.
