Report: Gronkowski, Jones-Drew out Sunday

FOXBORO -- Two personnel decisions have been made Friday for this weekend's Patriots-Jaguars game.
According to the Boston Globe, Rob Gronkowski will not be active Sunday. The designation aligns with CSNNE's Tom Curran's initial report after the tight end broke his forearm in Week 11; the team will rest Gronkowski until the playoffs.
On Jacksonville's end, running back Maurice Jones-Drew has been ruled out.
Jones-Drew has been struggling to recover from a foot injury suffered October 21. Despite his comments this week -- "When things get tough, losers tend to quit. For me I get paid to play football. If I can go out there and be productive and help my team, I'm all for it. -- there seemed little chance the Jaguars would risk a setback in another sure-loss, in a 2-12 season.
Sunday's tilt marks the ninth Jones-Drew has missed.
