Rob Gronkowski Injury UpdateUp to the minute news and rumors on Rob Gronkowski's injury
The only news out of Foxborough today is that there is no news, as the Patriots maintained the status quo on their injury report on Friday.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The Patriots had perfect attendance for the second day in a row on both the 53-man active roster and the 10-man practice squad. Even though all players were present for the open-media stretching portion of practice, the Patriots still have an extensive injury report. Ten players were listed as limited participants at practice on Thursday, including linebacker Jamie Collins (thigh), running back Shane Vereen (shoulder), wide receiver Julian Edelman (back) and tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee).
Starting linebacker Jamie Collins is listed as questionable on the team’s injury report, as the New England Patriots have had to recalibrate plans in the event Collins isn’t ready for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. Collins, who first showed up on the injury report Thursday after injuring his thigh, did not practice Friday. Meanwhile, tight end Rob Gronkowski was upgraded to probable as he continues to make progress in his recovery.
The toughest guy to cover on the Patriots might not be the man they call Gronk, the one who spikes footballs hard during the season and apparently slams shot glasses even harder in the offseason.

His sheer size and strength, in addition to respectable speed and a punishing style of play, have made him arguably the best all-around tight end in the league. But Patriots running back Shane Vereen poses a potentially tougher challenge for the Vikings. He...
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Rob Gronkowski didn’t exactly look like his old dominating self yesterday in his first game since blowing out his right knee last season.Still, Gronkowski was one of the only bright spots in the Patriots’ 33-20 loss to the Dolphins.The tight end was targeted 11 times by quarterback Tom Brady, caught four passes for 40 yards and pulled in a 6-yard pass for a touchdown, as he broke free in the end zone for an easy score.It was one of his red zone specials so, naturally, he provided a trademark spike.
FOXBORO — The two most important pieces to the Patriots’ offensive success shook off their respective injuries and traveled with the team to Miami yesterday afternoon.Quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski are good to go for tomorrow’s season opener against the Dolphins, according to sources. Brady returned to practice yesterday on a limited basis after missing Thursday’s workout with a calf injury, and he’ll continue to require maintenance on the issue but won’t miss the divisional showdown.
The Patriots have not given a clear indication as to whether Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski will play on Sunday against the Dolphins.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- While New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is expected to play in Sunday's season opener, Bill Belichick has listed him as questionable on the club's final injury report of the week. Brady was limited in Friday's practice. In the past, Brady has been listed as probable, so the questionable designation sheds light that the calf injury he suffered in Wednesday's practice is more than just a passing ailment. Elsewhere, tight end Rob Gronkowski is officially questionable.

That plan is to play all 16 regular-season games for the Patriots, and then a few more, too.Every Patriots player, coach and fan hopes that plan comes to fruition.However, at this stage, that’s all it is: hope. Given Gronkowski’s injury history, there’s nothing to indicate anything more.This week, Gronkowski announced he would in fact be ready for Sunday’s opener against the Dolphins.
Three Patriots defensive linemen were also limited on Wednesday. The Patriots' defensive line will have to be at full health if they want to take advantage of the Dolphins reconstructed offensive line.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski declared that he is ready to play in the Sept. 7 season opener against the Dolphins, while also adding that a full workload isn't a realistic expectation. “Definitely not [playing] every single snap. But just get out there, get my feet wet, whatever coaches have, whatever we game-plan this week, will be good," he said.
