Rob Gronkowski attends Saturday practice
The New England Patriots got some very good news on Saturday regarding the health of tight end Rob Gronkowski.
ESPN’s Mike Reiss reported that Gronkowski was present for the start of Saturday’s practice, a very encouraging sign as he works his way back from a concussion.

Gronkowski still hasn’t been fully cleared, so there’s still some ways to go here, but this is the first time he’s been involved in a team activity since Barry Church hit him helmet-to-helmet in the AFC Championship. The Patriots have been encouraged all along that he’ll be good to go, and this would seem to be an indication that he’s on schedule and getting himself ready for Super Bowl LII.
