FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski reportedly did not travel with the team for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Gronkowski has not played since breaking his forearm during a Jan. 13 playoff game. He also had back surgery in June.

Patriots spokesman Stacey James said Saturday that he could not confirm media reports that Gronkowski did not make the trip to Cincinnati.

A second-round draft choice in 2010, Gronkowski has scored 39 touchdowns in 43 NFL games. He reached the Pro Bowl in 2011 after setting records for NFL tight ends with 17 touchdown catches, 18 total touchdowns and 1,327 yards receiving.
