Ottawa Sun - - SPORTS -

GRONK TO SIT: Gronk is out again. New Eng­land will play with­out star tight end Rob Gronkowski on Sun­day at Ten­nessee, ac­cord­ing to nu­mer­ous re­ports. He is bat­tling an­kle and back in­juries. This will be the third game that Gronk has missed in the Pa­tri­ots' last four. He played in New Eng­land's 25-6 Mon­day night vic­tory at Buf­falo on Oct. 29. In that game, he was tar­geted eight times, and caught three of Tom Brady's passes for 43 yards.

BARKLEY TO START: The Buf­falo Bills on Satur­day ruled rookie quar­ter­back Josh Allen out and last week's emer­gency signee, Matt Barkley, as starter for Sun­day's game at the New York Jets. Allen suf­fered an el­bow in­jury on his right throw­ing arm a month ago but prac­tised for the first time this week. Barkley backed up Nathan Peter­man last Sun­day in a 41-9 home­field loss to the Chicago Bears. Barkley has started six games and won one (all in Chicago in 2016) in an NFL ca­reer that be­gan in 2012.

CROWDED OUT: The Washington Red­skins on Satur­day down­graded WR Jami­son Crow­der to out for Sun­day's game at Tampa Bay. He has an an­kle in­jury and did not make the trip. This is in ad­di­tion to four start­ing of­fen­sive line­men hav­ing been in­jured in the past two weeks. Last Sun­day, guards Shawn Lau­vao and Bran­don Scherff were lost for the sea­son, and right tackle Mor­gan Moses is ques­tion­able against the Bucs with a knee in­jury.
