Tom Curran of Comcast SportsNet New England reports X-rays show Rob Gronkowski indeed has a broken forearm.

Both Mike Garafolo of USA Today and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport report Gronk's timeline is 4-6 weeks. Although they are different kinds of players, the loss of Gronkowski may force the Patriots to act with more urgency on Aaron Hernandez (ankle), who's been practicing the past two weeks but has not played in games. Gronkowski is such a valuable player to New England's offense that he figures to be kept on the roster, rather than placed on injured reserve, in hopes of a very late-season or postseason return. It's obviously a crushing blow to fantasy owners, as well. Gronkowski was the No. 1 overall fantasy tight end through ten games.

The Athletic's Jeff Howe reports the Patriots are nearing a reworked contract with Rob Gronkowski.

Contract discussions have been "positive," per Howe, and a new deal sounds imminent. Gronkowski has been angling for a restructured contract for years, and understandably so. Gronkowski would be a first-ballot Hall of Famer if his career ended today, yet Gronk is presently the NFL's fourth-highest paid tight end behind Jimmy Graham, Travis Kelce, and Jordan Reed.

Colts coach Frank Reich insists the team is "not worried at all" that Andrew Luck (shoulder) has yet to resume throwing.

It has been 507 days since Luck threw a football. "Right now we’re just continuing to stay in the same mode," Reich said of his quarterback's never-ending rehab. "Can’t cut things short. There’s no reason to cut things short. It’s a day-by-day process and evaluation and just staying trusting in that." Luck believes his last rehab failed because he "skipped steps." Luck hopes to be throwing "without restrictions" by the start of training camp. That would require picking up a football in the very near future.

Domestic violence charges against 49ers MLB Reuben Foster have been dropped.

This was expected after Foster's accuser recanted her claims in a preliminary hearing. Foster’s possession of a weapon charge was also reduced to a misdemeanor, with his pre-trial set for June 6. It's great news for Foster's standing with the 49ers, though he may still face league discipline. Foster will return to team activities now that the case is resolved.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco wouldn't rule out re-signing free agent TE Antonio Gates.

Following the season-ending ACL tear suffered by Hunter Henry on Tuesday, the Chargers are left with Virgil Green and a host of UDFAs at tight end. Gates turns 38 next month and has very little left at this point, but he obviously knows the system and has a great rapport with Philip Rivers. If he were to be re-signed, Gates would be an immediate red-zone threat but little else.

Free agent OG Richie Incognito was involved in an altercation at a Florida gym on Wednesday and is being held by police for an involuntary psychiatric evaluation.

It's called the Baker Act, which is an involuntary mental evaluation. Incognito allegedly threw a dumbbell at another man in a Boca Raton gym this morning "for no apparent reason" after first throwing a tennis ball at the gym-goer. Incognito was allegedly "rambling about the government and screaming at the other man to 'get off my f*cking playground'." This is the second time Incognito has been held under the Baker Act, with the first coming in 2014. Incognito is a free agent after being released by the Bills this week. He had planned to continue his career.

Free agent TE Marcedes Lewis will visit the Packers this week.

Lewis was released by the Jaguars more than two months ago, and this is the first known interest we've seen emerge for him. He just turned 34 last week and spent 12 seasons with Jacksonville. Green Bay has Jimmy Graham and Lance Kendricks at tight end, but Lewis could provide help as a blocker.

The NFL will not require players to be on the field for the national anthem in 2018.

The media owned by the league is spinning this as a "compromise," but it's hardly that. As Judy Battista puts it, "If players are on sideline, will stand. But players may choose to stay in the locker room if they prefer not to stand." Her colleague at NFL Media, Ian Rapoport adds, "Respecting the anthem will be paramount if you’re on the sideline. Teams can also set their own policies. Compromise all around." Compromise for the league owners, maybe, but the players had zero say in this said "compromise." The owners are simply trying to keep the anthem "protesters" and "disrespecters" off the field for the song. It may not even work. If a player has strong feelings toward social injustice -- we assume they do if they're kneeling -- a fine may not be strong enough "punishment" to keep him off the field during the anthem. The NFL continues to find ways to get in its own way and fuel a fire that keeps burning.

According to ESPN Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson, second-rounder Anthony Miller is "earmarked" for the slot receiver job.

Allen Robinson is working as the X with Taylor Gabriel at the Z spot. Robinson was signed to be Chicago's new No. 1 wideout, and Gabriel is expected to fill the big-play, deep-threat role in coach Matt Nagy's offense. The Bears traded up for Miller at No. 51 overall. It's not out of the question that Miller could be second on the team in targets as a rookie behind Robinson.

Hunter Henry suffered a torn ACL at Chargers OTAs on Tuesday.

What a devastating blow to a player who was projected to play a massive role in a Chargers offense without Antonio Gates in it for the first time in 15 years. Henry is obviously done for the season, and it leaves Virgil Green currently atop the depth chart. It’s fair to wonder if the Bolts will turn back to Gates after they told him they were moving on earlier this offseason. However, Gates showed he has little to nothing left in the tank. Perhaps the Chargers will use more three- and four-wide sets with their abundance of receivers, including Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Tyrell Williams, and Travis Benjamin. GM Tom Telesco may also explore the trade market.

NFL.com's Mike Silver reports the Browns offered the Eagles the No. 35 overall pick for Nick Foles before eventually trading for Tyrod Taylor.

Per Silver, the Eagles consulted Foles, who said he wished to remain in Philadelphia. The sides later reached a reworked contract that gave Foles 2018 incentives and the option to leave in 2019. It's nice to see a team do right by a player, but the Eagles should have sold high on their Super Bowl hero. As it is, he's excellent quarterback insurance as Carson Wentz completes his recovery from a torn ACL.
