Adjust Comment Print

Gronkowski was back out on the practice field Saturday as the team gets ready for its date with the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was present at the start of Saturday's practice session. Jaguars safety Barry Church was flagged and fined for the hit that knocked Gronkowski out of the game.

In Friday's injury report, the Patriots were required to list Gronkowski's status for a hypothetical game that would have been played on Sunday.

Almost a week later, Gronkowski hasn't been cleared to practice and remains in the NFL's concussion protocol. They face the Philadelphia Eagles on February 4. Gronkowski is a matchup nightmare and is a huge part of the Patriots offense-he led New England in receptions (69), receiving yards (1,084) and receiving touchdowns (8). Gronkowski's close friend, WWE star Mojo Rawley, also said Gronkowski will return just in time for the Super Bowl.

Brown is dealing with a foot injury, while Gillislee and Waddle are bothered by knee issues that limited them in past practices.

In addition, Tom Brady practiced without a glove on his throwing hand on Saturday in Foxboro's relatively comfortable 50-degree weather.
