According to Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians, superstar tight end Rob Gronkowski will be out against the Miami Dolphins this weekend.

Gronkowski is dealing with a rib injury, and this will mark the second straight week in which he’ll be out for Tampa Bay.

In three games this season, the 32-year-old has already racked up 16 receptions for 184 yards and four touchdowns. His connection with Tom Brady is clearly still strong.

Dolphins fans have seen Gronkowski play countless times throughout his career, as his time with the New England Patriots featured frequent matchups with Miami.

The Buccaneers are surely hoping to have the five-time Pro Bowler back as soon as possible, but for Week 5, the Dolphins won’t have to game plan for him.
