LOOK: Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski sports imposing arm brace

By Ryan Wilson | CBSSports.com

After missing the first six games recovering from offseason forearm surgery, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski returns to the lineup Sunday vs. the Jets for the first time this season. And he'll do so wearing an imposing black arm brace. Gronkowski told CBS color analyst Dan Dierdorf that the brace "borrowed a lot of technology from motocross, it's black carbon fiber and it has pads on the inside and outside."

As for whether it will hinder Gronk's mobility, the tight end told Dierdorf, "It's really not a problem. I've been wearing for over a month during practice, I don't even feel it anymore."
