So, great news for the Patriots and for Gronkowski -- who's missed 14 games combined in the past two seasons because of injuries.
Gronkowski, though, doesn't plan to play every single snap on offense.
"Just get out there, get my feet wet," Gronkowski told reporters, via ESPN Boston. "Whatever we game-plan this week will be good."
