Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski Limited In Return To Practice Thursday
New England tight end Rob Gronkowski's return from a high ankle sprain highlighted Thursday's Super Bowl XLVI practice. Appearing during the second half of the nearly two-hour session, Gronkowski participated on a limited basis for the first time since suffering a sprained left ankle during the AFC Championship Game. Things operate a little differently in New England, and Steve Wyche explains how Pats' hodgepodge secondary embodies what the franchise is all about. More ... “He did some things. He didn’t do everything,” Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said. “We’ll see how he is tomorrow. I think that will be the big key -- how he responds to this today.” Asked how encouraged he was by what Gronkowski did Thursday, Belichick said, “It was good. It was fine. We’ll see where he is tomorrow -- whether that set him back, whether it didn’t and whether he’s able to continue to progress on a daily basis. But it was a good test for him, too, at least. At least he was out here and did some things to see how it feels. We’ll see how it goes.” Gronkowski enjoyed one of the most prolific seasons for a tight end in NFL history with 90 catches for 1,327 yards and 17 touchdowns.
