Rob Gronkowski (back) did not travel with the Patriots to Chicago on Saturday according to the Boston Globe which cited an unidentified league source.

But the Pro Bowl tight end has not been ruled out yet.

Gronkowski had the back injury pop up in practice this week and is listed as questionable for the Week 7 matchup against the Bears.

The four-time All Pro has already dealt with an ankle injury this season, but has yet to miss a game.

He has 26 catches for 405 yards and a touchdown on the year.
