Rob Gronkowski participates in team drills, but not at full speed
by Larry Hartstein |

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, 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

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

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 |

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski likely will be on the field for Thursday's first practice, but 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

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.
