Rob Gronkowski Injury Update – ‘Questionable’ for Super Bowl

The Patriots finished their week of practice today, and we now have at least a slightly clearer idea of what the status of star tight end Rob Gronkowski is for Super Bowl Sunday.

Rob Gronkowski Injury Status For Super Bowl 46

According to Pro Football Talk, via on-site reporter Alex Marvez, Gronkowski is officially listed as “questionable” for the Super Bowl. Marvez reported also that Gronkowski did not have any noticeable limp during the Patriots’ offensive practice.

rob-gronkowski-injury-update-status-for-super-bowl-46Bill Belichick is notoriously tight-lipped about his players’ injuries heading into the game, but even his dry stonewalling of reporters can’t mask the fact that Gronkowski will indeed play Sunday.

As Midwest Sports Fans and others have commented, however, we won’t know until the Pats take the field whether we’re getting the Gronkowski who is a hybrid of Antonio Gates, Bo Jackson and a Madden create-a-player or a limited Gronk who serves as a decoy to try to spring the rest of New England’s weapons.

Belichick and other sources have told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Gronkowski will be on the field as long as he doesn’t experience any setbacks, so since the Patriots only have a team photo to worry about tomorrow, the chances for setbacks seemed to have evaporated.

Marvez also reported that Gronkowski was wearing a T-shirt with his newly coined phrase “Yo soy fiesta” on the front, so it’s nice to see that even after the Bibi Jones controversy and the injury, the Gronk still likes to party.

 

In other injury news, the Patriots don’t expect any of their other players to miss the Super Bowl, and there has been nothing of note out of the Giants camp either.  It looks like we’ll see the best both sides have to offer on the field, which should make an already interesting matchup live up to its billing.
