In just three short days, Rob Gronkowski’s ankle will officially become one of the most photographed body parts in Super Bowl history. We certainly know the pictures and videos have been rolling in over the last two weeks. The thing that has made this particular injury fun for the media is that Gronkowski is a fun-loving guy. Bill Belichick has trained Gronk well this week — and by trained I mean drilled the phrase “day-to-day” into his head — but the Patriots tight end has still managed to have some fun with his injury. On Thursday, Gronk decided to bust out the fake limp for the cameras as he took the podium for his media session. Check out this video that Jimmy Traina shared with us:
As you heard in the video, Gronk is expected to play. He may even return to practice Thursday in a limited role. That is good news for Patriots fans, but it is something everyone knew all along. The question is not whether or not Gronk is going to play, it’s how effective he will be. If there’s any beast in the NFL who is equipped to fight through the pain, it’s this dude.
