Rob Gronkowski waiting for full-contact clearance


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski remains without a timeline for his return to any full-contact practice, according to the team's website. Gronkowski was cleared to practice before the start of training camp, as he works his way back from a torn ACL suffered against Cleveland in December. He has yet to take part in 7-on-7 or 11-on-11 drills.

"Just a little time off to let the knee heal a little bit more. You know, you can't always be grinding on it 24/7 off an injury. You have to let it heal," Gronkowski said. "I'm feeling better since the time off, so, it's going well. My body kind of needed it, my knee needed it, that rest, when they went to Virginia. It was good progress."


Rob Gronkowski held out of Pats-Redskins joint practices

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

It's another indication Gronk is on track to be ready for the season opener.


Rob Gronkowski participates in team drills, but not at full speed


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is steadly increasing his workload at training camp. Coming back from a torn ACL, Gronk initially stuck to individual drills and wasn't on the field for 7-on-7 or 11-on-11 work.

That changed Sunday. According to NFL.com, Gronkowski took part in team drills at half to 3/4 speed. All signs point to Gronk playing Week 1 when New England visits Miami, the website said.


Rob Gronkowski not yet 100 percent


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski said Friday he plans to make a fearless return to the field this season and put a string of injuries behind him, reports WEEI in Boston. Gronkowski is coming back from a torn ACL in 2013.

As for being at full strength, Gronkowski cautioned that there is still plenty of work remaining before that hurdle is cleared.

"If it were 100 percent, I'd be doing every single thing so no, I'm not 100 percent right now, obviously not," Gronkowski said. "I'm working my way to get to that and I'm working every single day to get to that and improving every single day. I'm preparing myself to my max ability right now for the first regular game. I can't really say anything from here on out because it's far away. Every single day, I'm just giving it everything I've got in the rehab room and out here on the field. I'm preparing myself and listening to my trainers, what they have for me so that I'm ready to go when it comes down to it. Hopefully, I am.

"No timetable at all. Just keep improving every single day and we'll see what the trainers want me to do. They've been through plenty of knee injuries throughout their years here."


Rob Gronkowski doesn't work in team drills


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/24/2014) Rob Gronkowski avoided the PUP list to kick off Patriots training camp but wasn't on the field for 7 on 7 or 11 on 11 drills on Thursday. According to the Boston Globe, Gronk did do positional drills and one on one "stuff" with Tom Brady but was otherwise held out of action. Brady and Gronk got together after practice as well. 

The paper provided a detailed look at his first day of camp, noting that he "was able to cut and plant on his right knee with little to no problem." However, when he used his right leg to push off on routes he struggled to accelerate because he had to put his full weight on his leg. 

Gronkowski is being eased back into practice following a torn ACL suffered last December. 


Gronk expected to be brought along slowly


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski likely will be on the field for Thursday's first practice, but ESPN.com expects the team to "bring him along slowly" rather than have him go "full bore." Gronkowski tore his ACL less than seven months ago.

It will be interesting to see whether Gronkowski practices Saturday, when players put on pads for the first time, the website said.


Belichick: Rob Gronkowski has been cleared, will practice


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/23/2014) Patriots head coach Bill Belichick told the media Wednesday morning that tight end Rob Gronkowski has been cleared for practice. He will not be placed on the team's PUP list. 

Gronkowski suffered a torn ACL last December and has apparently recovered from the injury without incident. It's a much different result than last year when Gronkowski was recovering from forearm and back surgeries and missed all of training camp as well as the first half of the season. 

The burly tight end has 42 touchdowns in 50 regular-season games and has averaged 79.7 yards per gamer over the last three seasons. 


Rob Gronkowski 'planning on playing the whole season'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/2014) Speaking to an audience during a football clinic last week, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski said he's "planning on playing the whole season this year." 

Gronkowski is working his way back from a torn ACL suffered last December. He's been working out at the Pats' facility. The typical nine-month timetable to rehab and return from the injury puts him on track to come back just after the team's Week 1 game at Miami. 

Gronk wasn't sure whether or not he'd be ready to participate in the Pats' training camp, which opens soon. 

"I'll sit down with the coaches and training staff and we'll see," he said per ESPN. "I'm just working with the trainers right now, improving every single day and whenever it starts up, whatever the trainers have, whatever the coaches have for me, whatever we feel comfortable with [we'll be] doing as much as possible every day that I can do."


Four-way battle to back up Gronk


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) Four players are vying to back up Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, whose surgically repaired knee might not be 100 percent when the season opens, reports the Boston Globe. The paper projects Michael Hoomanawanui to beat out D.J. Williams, Asa Watson and Justin Jones for the No. 2 job.

A five-year vet, Hoomanawanui is a 6-4, 260-pounder who "runs good routes over the middle but does not have the long speed to threaten a defense vertically down the seam," the paper said. He has caught 20 of 26 targets over the past two seasons, with one drop.


Report: Rob Gronkowski 'ready to go in Week 1'

Patriots won't rush Rob Gronkowski back for camp


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) The Patriots want tight end Rob Gronkowski available for the season opener, so they're not going to push him to return for training camp, reports NFL.com's Albert Breer. "It's possible that he'd be ready for the start of camp, but he and the team aren't going to do anything to jeopardize the real goal, which is to have him on the field for Week 1," Breer said.

Gronkowski underwent surgery to fix his torn ACL and MCL in early January.


Rob Gronkowski runs sprints up hill


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/19/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski continues to make strides in his recovery from last year's torn ACL and MCL, reports the Boston Herald.

On Wednesday, Gronkowski ran sprints up the side of a hill for about 10 minutes. It’s the first time Gronkowski has done that conditioning work in front of the media, per the report, so it can be chalked up as a sign of progress.


Rob Gronkowski 'bursting, planting and cutting'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was "bursting, planting, and cutting" during OTAs last week and "doesn’t look like he’s having any limitations," reports the Boston Globe. Gronkowski is coming back from ACL and MCL surgery.

Although Gronkowski looked good in the open portion of practice, the paper said it's unclear whether he'll be ready for the season opener.

Rob Gronkowski won't commit to being ready for opener


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski said his rehab from a torn ACL is going well but he would not commit to being ready for the season opener, reports the Boston Herald.

"That’s too far away, man," Gronkowski said. "I’m just improving every day right now."

The rehab is "going good, man," Gronkowski continued. "You know how it is. Working hard every day, and I’m actually improving every week. It’s feeling good and coming along very well."

Gronkowski is nearly five months into his rehab. According to the paper, "the consistent word" has been that he'll return to the field during training camp.

Gronkowski called the recovery process monotonous.

"You’ve just got to have a mindset basically every single day that you’re going to go in, work hard and you’re going to get better," Gronkowski said. "Definitely going in when it’s the same thing 15 weeks straight, it starts to get tough, but you’ve got to stay mentally tough, stay physically strong. You’ve got to just keep going in and keep grinding."


Rob Gronkowski will 'take his time' coming back


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/16/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will "take his time and then take more time" coming back from a torn ACL suffered last season, a source told Bleacher Report

Gronkowski's heart was questioned last year when he took his time coming back from forearm and back procedures. This year he might not care how long he takes as he wants to practice patience in his rehab. 

The knee injury happened in December of last year. Usually it takes nine months to come back from an ACL injury without incident. That would mean he'd be ready to hit the field by late August.
