Rob Gronkowski Works With Starters in 11-on-11 Drills at Patriots Practice


Rob Gronkowski, Andre' GoodmanFOXBORO, Mass. — For the second straight day, Rob Gronkowski was in uniform and practicing with the Patriots.

Gronkowski was working with the starters in 11-on-11s on Monday as the portion of practice open to the media was wrapping up. The players were in shells and shorts. Sunday afternoon’s practice was full pads.

Will Svitek¬†was absent again. He was spotted in the locker room on Sunday with a knee brace on. All of the new players on the 53-man roster were accounted for — A.J. Francis, Braxston Cave, Chris White and Chris Barker.

Quentin Sims, who reported was being signed to the practice squad on Sunday night, was not spotted at practice. A source said Sims’ flight was landing Monday morning and that it might be a stretch for him to be out at practice Monday morning. There was a No. 71, who is not on the roster, spotted at practice.
