News Blitz 10/17: Gronk's Week 7 status unknown according to agent

The News Blitz gets you up to date with the latest news from local and national media.


Ben Volin]( the Boston Globe reports onDrew Rosenhaus**' appearance on Miami radio this morning. Rosenhaus - the agent of Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski - stated that when Gronk is cleared, he'll play.

"Quite frankly, it's not a huge upset that up to this point he hasn't been cleared to play in a game," said Rosenhaus. "We anticipated this. Hopefully he'll be back soon, maybe even this weekend, but there's no way to know until the end of the week when his doctors make that determination."

Erik Frenz of the Boston Globe believes that Patriots RB Stevan Ridley deserves to remain the lead running back.

Speaking on his performance against the Saints, Frenz had the following to say about Ridley:

"He dragged defenders, bounced off them, and otherwise found ways to keep his legs moving. Ridley finished with 60 yards after contact, breaking four tackles in the process and showed both the explosive burst and the toughness that has made him the Patriots best option in the backfield two years running."


Luke Hughes]( writes that Tom Brady has climbed back into the MVP race with his comeback victory over the Saints in Week 6. Brady comes in 9th in Hughes' top-10 list, trailing the likes ofPeyton Manning,Jamaal CharlesandDrew Brees**.

"Brady's stats aren't exactly tantalizing, especially when considering the seasons that led to his two MVP trophies, but what he's done this season can't be strictly quantified in numbers," argues Hughes. "Working with an entirely new receiving corps, Brady continues to make the most of his opportunities and find ways to win without almost any of his former mates. Sunday's comeback win was classic Brady and earned him a place back among the NFL's best."

Brian Billick of Fox Sports shares his Week 6 NFL Power Rankings. The former Super Bowl-winning head coach puts the Patriots at the number 4 spot on his list.

"Bill Belichick is better than anyone at taking away an opponent's best weapon," adds Billick. "Jimmy Graham finished with zero catches on Sunday. Zero."

The Broncos, Chiefs and Seahawks hold the top three spots respectively.
