| Gronkowski update -- Fri Sep 6 11:30 am --|
Not expected to play Sunday, Week 2 or 3 a possibility
|Tight end Rob Gronkowski participated today in the fifth and final practice of the week.
The Patriots were in shorts, and the media access was limited to jogging and stretching, so there wasn't much to monitor from a football standpoint.
Still, don't expect Gronkowski to play Sunday. Next week remains in play, but Week 3 or 4 would be more realistic. (Boston Herald)|
FF Today's Take: The Patriots play Thursday in Week 2 so Week 3 is the more likely scenario for Gronk's return. The Patriots, of course, won't confirm Gronk's timetable.
