Rob Gronkowski Injury UpdateUp to the minute news and rumors on Rob Gronkowski's injury
FOXBORO — Aside from his own back and forearm injuries, not much else has been able to stop Rob Gronkowski.The tight end has caught one touchdown pass in each of his last four games and continues to put up solid numbers despite being matched up with two or three defenders.Gronk is big, fast and physical, all the same words he used yesterday to describe Cleveland’s defense, which has been tough all season on tight ends.
The Patriots released veteran tight end D.J. Williams on Wednesday, one week after he was signed. Williams, who played three offensive snaps in the team's Week 13 win over Houston, provided depth and insurance while the team was without Michael Hoomanwanui, who returned to practice Wednesday after missing two games due to a knee injury. With Hoomanawanui back in the mix, the Patriots have three players at tight end, led by Rob Gronkowski. Veteran Matthew Mulligan is the team's other backup.
Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is on pace for the second most productive season of his four-year career.He's played five games in three months.Despite being a mainstay on the injury report with forearm, back and hamstring ailments, it's not difficult to watch Gronkowski and see the player who was so dominant before the spell of injuries. If it weren't for his robo-arm, the remnants of his offseason procedures might be all but forgotten on game days.

FOXBORO — For the second straight day, Steve Gregory was the only absence, while six players — including tight end Rob Gronkowski (back/forearm/hamstring) and cornerback Aqib Talib (hip) — were among those listed as limited in Friday’s sweats and shells practice outside Gillette Stadium. The team will practice again on Saturday and then hold a [...]
Mike Reiss discusses Rob Gronkowski's apology for using racially insensitive comments to mock a fan.
This Patriots season has been filled with nothing but turmoil, setbacks, and drama. Wes Welker walked away. Aaron Hernandez went away. Rob Gronkowski returned to practice, but wouldn’t return for games. Some of the team’s top players suffered significant injuries, including season-enders for indestructible defensive leaders Vince Wilfork and Jerod Mayo.
The New England Patriots dealt with extensive turnover among their receiving group this offseason, as well as early season injuries to tight end Rob Gronkowski and receiver Danny Amendola. The transition from last season's group of pass-catchers to this season's, which includes three rookie wideouts, has been a growing process. It hasn't always been easy for quarterback Tom Brady, who had his best game of the season in Week 9 against the Steelers, but the offensive line has been a group that he's been able to rely on heavily.
Despite dealing with a shopping cart full of injuries and getting dinged up in the third quarter for good measure, Rob Gronkowski had a career day against the Steelers.The big tight end had a career-high nine receptions along with 143 yards and one touchdown and looked much better after being limited last week against the Dolphins. That's quite the time for him to catch a rhythm, especially before he can rest up during the bye week.
When the Patriots have the ball: QB Tom Brady has looked average the past four games, throwing just two touchdowns, four INTs, getting sacked 16 times and never having a passer rating above 75. The Patriots have struggled on third down, converting just 32.2 percent (37 of 115) -- second worst in the AFC. Brady, though, has been without several top performers. RB Shane Vereen is on injured reserve, WR Danny Amendola missed four games with a groin injury and concussion, and TE Rob Gronkowski has just returned after missing the first six games with a back injury. Whats more, RT Sebastian Vollmer...
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Tight end Rob Gronkowski (hamstring, back, forearm) is listed as probable to play in Sunday's game against the Steelers after being limited in practice this week. Gronkowski finally practiced fully last Friday and was probable for Week 8, though he suffered a hamstring injury at some point before Wednesday's injury report was released. In addition, cornerback Aqib Talib (hip) is questionable after being limited in practice, and defensive tackle Tommy Kelly (knee), who did not practice on Friday, is out and will miss his fourth straight game.
For the second consecutive day, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski practiced on a limited basis as he deals with a hamstring issue on top of his previously existing back and forearm injuries. The Patriots had an identical practice participation report on Thursday as they did on Wednesday, with Gronkowski one of 10 players that were limited, joined by cornerback Aqib Talib, defensive tackle Tommy Kelly and running back Leon Washington, who each sat out in Week 8.
FOXBORO — Rob Gronkowski is now working through the latest phase in Operation: Gronk Spike.The tight end is trying to catch up to speed with quarterback Tom Brady after a long injury layoff. Gronkowski turned in a huge performance in his season debut against the New York Jets, catching eight passes for 114 yards, but he only had two catches for 27 yards Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, though a 30-yard touchdown grab negated by penalty would have restored some order on the stat sheet.
FOXBORO — There were no changes to the Patriots injury report on Thursday, as the same 11 players who were listed as limited on Wednesday — including cornerback Aqib Talib (hip), wide receiver Danny Amendola (groin) and Rob Gronkowski (back/forearm/hamstring) — were on the Thursday report. In addition, quarterback Tom Brady (right shoulder) was again [...]
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- After practicing fully for the first time all season this past Friday, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was limited Wednesday due to a hamstring injury to go on top of his existing back and forearm issues. Gronkowski spoke with reporters on Wednesday, though he did not make any mention of the injury and it is unclear how severe it is and when it occurred. Defensive tackle Tommy Kelly (knee) and Leon Washington (ankle) were limited participants in their return to practice on Wednesday, as were cornerbacks Aqib Talib (hip) and Kyle Arrington (groin), who left...
As if Rob Gronkowski didn't have enough to worry about, his hamstring was added to this week's injury report to go along with the back and forearm.Tom Brady's right shoulder remained on the report, while Devin McCourty (shoulder) and Rob Ninkovich (groin) have been removed from the list.Here is the full report.Limited:WR Danny Amendola (groin)CB Kyle Arrington (groin)RB Brandon Bolden (knee)OL Marcus Cannon (shoulder)
Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Bill Belichick and other members of the Patriots made some new friends Saturday, when they met with six Make A Wish Foundation children. One interesting thing to note in the photo below is the taped index and ring fingers on the right hand of Brady. Last Sunday, he appeared to be dealing with discomfort in his hand during a 30-27 OT loss at the Jets. Brady was listed on the Patriots' injury this week with a right shoulder issue, but he was a full participant in Friday's practice after being limited Thursday.
FOXBORO — The addition of Tom Brady (right shoulder) was the only change to the Patriots injury report for Thursday. The New England quarterback was joined a group that included cornerback Aqib Talib (hip), tight end Rob Gronkowski (back/forearm) and wide receiver Danny Amendola (concussion/groin) all listed as limited in Thursday’s workout. In addition, defensive [...]
By Paul Kenyon Rob Gronkowski feels as if he is going through a normal week this week, which he considers great news. The tight end said he is happy to talk about football and not injuries, to the point where he requested not to be asked any more about his injuries. ``The focus now is about the opponents coming up. The focus now is on the Miami Dolphins," he said. "Division games are huge. They're all huge. And this one is just as important as any other division game. They're all very important. The Dolphins are a good team. We have to prepare ourselves to the best of our...

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Maybe Rob Gronkowski lost the ball in the sun. Certainly, we saw a penalty that is called once in a blue moon decide the game.Maybe that’s what it takes for the Patriots to finally lose a game in the AFC East.

By Paul Kenyon It is official. Rob Gronkowski is active for the Patriots. And Matthew Slater, too. The Pats announced their inactives for the game. Five players already had been named. The final two are Josh Boyce and Chris Barker. That means Gronkowski will play for the first time this season and Slater will return from the broken wrist he suffered a month ago. Slater is wearing a smaller cast on his wrist than he has had since the injury.
Quick-hit thoughts around the NFL and with the Patriots: 1. With tight end Rob Gronkowski cleared by all doctors to make his 2013 debut today against the Jets, it is topical to revisit the play, and coaching decision, in which Gronkowski was initially injured. Gronkowski, as we remember, was playing the right wing position on the field-goal protection team when he broke his left forearm against the Colts last November, which sparked some to ask the question why such a critical player on offense was being exposed to added injury risk in that role on special teams.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Rob Gronkowski could be back in the New England Patriots' lineup now that his agent says he’s been cleared to play. The reliably cryptic Bill Belichick did not exactly confirm the report, saying, “We’ll list the injuries at the end of the day like we always do on Friday.” It’s unclear how Gronkowski, who had forearm and back surgery in the offseason, could play against New York this Sunday, but the 6-foot-6, 265-pound tight end has always presented a matchup problem for the Jets.
