Bill Belichick, Rob GronkowskiFOXBORO, Mass. — The Patriots have been without their star tight end for the first three weeks of the season, but that could change this Sunday night.

Bill Belichick said Rob Gronkowski has “definitely made progress” in his recovery from forearm and back surgeries. Gronkowski has been practicing with the team for weeks now.

Belichick would not say (in the most hilarious way possible) whether Gronkowski could have played against the Buccaneers during his press conference on Monday. The team has still won its first three matchups of the season, despite limited production from their reserve tight ends.
