Patriots Practice Attendance: Rob Gronkowski Absent After Injury Scare

FOXBORO, Mass. — The injury Rob Gronkowski suffered in the New England Patriots’ joint practice with the Chicago Bears reportedly is “minor,” but it was enough to keep him out of Tuesday’s training camp session.

Gronkowski, running backs Dion Lewis and Brandon Bolden, linebacker Shea McClellin, guard Jonathan Cooper, offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer and pass rusher Jabaal Sheard were the Patriots’ only absences Tuesday in their second joint practice with the Bears. Bolden and Gronkowski were the only new players missing.

Guard Tre’ Jackson, wide receiver Danny Amendola and safety Nate Ebner (back from the Olympics) were present but not in pads.
