It doesn’t come as a big surprise that New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will be missing his second week due to a hamstring injury after being ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins.

Gronkowski’s absence wasn’t exactly unexpected, but there were a few surprises with the inactives for Week 2 – including Pittsburgh wide receiver Markus Wheaton, who will miss the Steelers’ home game against Cincinnati with a shoulder injury. It’s the second straight missed game for Wheaton, who was listed as a full participant throughout the week.

Kansas City running back Jamaal Charles is out with a knee injury, but Miami running back Arian Foster (hamstring) and Carolina’s Jonathan Stewart (ankle) were in their teams’ respective lineups.

The Dolphins were again without center Mike Pouncey (hip). Defensive end Mario Williams, who was concussed in last week’s loss at Seattle, was active for Miami.
