FOXBORO, Mass. – Rob Gronkwoski has been cleared by doctors, but one questions still remains: Will the tight end suit up against the Jets?
It’s likely Gronkowski will play after looking great in practice and having his forearm cleared by multiple doctors. But it’s unlikely he plays a full share of snaps in his first game back. Gronkowski hasn’t suited up since January, when he played just seven snaps against the Texans before reinjuring his forearm.
Gronkowski played 25 snaps in his first game back from forearm surgery. The last game he played the majority of snaps in was Nov. 18 against the Colts.
But even an eased-in Gronkowski is better than no Gronkowski at all. Watch NESN.com Patriots writer Doug Kyed and MassLive.com’s Nick Underhill discuss the tight end’s possible return in the video above.
