Gronk Junior played just eight total snaps in the Buffalo's Week 1 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, where the Bills went down 13-7 to open up the season in M&T Bank Stadium.
Apparently, the Bills head coach Ryan sees former Minnesota Vikings man Felton as the better blocker and option at the fullback position as he looks to get Shady McCoy going as a real franchise caliber star.
Despite playing just eight snaps, Gronkowski did not look suitable to make the step up to the NFL just yet.
"As a lead-blocker, the youngest Gronk looked lost, whiffing on linebackers at the second level or simply not appearing to know his exact assignment," Bills blog 'Buffalo Rumblings' wrote about him.
Baby Gronk was signed by Buffalo as an undrafted free agent out of Kansas State. His week has been a huge contrast to that of fellow rookie fullback Andy Janovich, who scored a 30-yard touchdown on his first ever NFL carry for the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football.
