Former Jets TE Will Tye signs with the Patriots practice squad

Defensive lineman Leonard Williams right and the Jets defense are confident they can get to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in Sunday's game. And it might happen. Brady has been sacked 16 times through five games after going down just 15 time

The New England Patriots will have tight end Rob Gronkowski back in action Sunday when they take on the New York Jets. "There was no chance that it could have went", he said. Gronkowski, who has been hampered by injuries over recent memory, suffered the setback four days prior to the game, during a loss to the Carolina Panthers.

Gronkowski, speaking to reporters Friday, said he's "good to go" for the AFC East rivalry game after missing last Thursday's game with a thigh injury.

Gronkowski was also decimated by a groin injury during the Week 2 win over the New Orleans Saints, leaving the contest in the third quarter after tearing the opposition up for 116 yards and one touchdown on six receptions. "It is what it is".

New England's offense struggled to make big plays without Gronk in the lineup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, managing just 19 points last Thursday.

"You just cheer for your teammates, and you're just there for support", he said.

Tye, who was with the Jets for the first three games of the season in the absence of Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who was suspended for the first two games of the year, caught four passes for a total of 38 yards for NY. "Whatever coaches call, I'll be ready".
