As it does every season, the attrition level in the NFL knows no bounds. Just as the Ravens have lost the services of Ray Lewis to injury, the Packers with Charles Woodson, and the Steelers with Ben Roethlisberger, add to the list Rob Gronkowski to the stars lost to injury. This could set the Patriots back as Aaron Hernandez has to step his game up to offset his counterparts replacement. If ever there was a chance for Hernandez to show he’s as good as Gronk, the time is now. He gets to do it in the stretch run to the playoffs also. Aaron step it up!!
