Gronkowski suffered an injury to his ribs in Los Angeles last Sunday and did not join the team on its trip north Saturday.
He did not participate in any practices this week and will miss a game for the first time since joining the Buccaneers in 2020, according to the team's website.
Pierre-Paul will miss a second straight game due to a shoulder injury.

The Bucs are 2-1, and the Patriots are 1-2.
The game will be Tom Brady's first as a visitor at New England, where he played for 20 seasons under coach Bill Belichick and won six Super Bowls.
