FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (WGGB) — Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who has missed play in the first six games of this season, may be a step closer to getting back on the gridiron.
NFL Media’s Albert Breer reports that following an inquiry into Gronk’s status with his agent Drew Rosenhaus, Rosenhaus replied that “Rob (Gronkowski) has now been cleared by all his doctors to play Sunday in the Jets game.”
Gronkowski has been recovering from an injury to his forearm, as well as from surgery he underwent this summer to repair a disk in his back.
When asked about the report at a press conference Friday, coach Bill Belichick said, “We’ll list the injuries at the end of the day, like we always do Friday.”
While he hasn’t seen any game play so far this season, ESPN Boston reports that Gronkowski has been a part of every practice during this regular season.
The Patriots square off against the New York Jets from MetLife Stadium Sunday at 1:00 p.m.
