Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski Unlikely To Be Ready To Play By Week 1
It is "not realistic" to expect New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who underwent offseason back and forearm surgery, to be ready to play in the team's regular-season opener against the Bills in Buffalo, Adam Schefter of ESPN eports. This according to sources familiar with the situation said Monday.
"It's a huge stretch to think he could play against the Bills," the source said.
Despite that, another source said Gronkowski "looks great, is doing great" during his workouts at the Patriots' training facility, where he has been running and lifting.
Progress is being made, but not enough for there to be much confidence Gronkowski will be ready for the start of this season. Before then, one of the biggest roster decisions New England will have to make is whether to carry Gronkowski on the 53-man roster or place him on the physically unable to perform list, which would automatically sideline him for at least the first six games.
