Gronk expected to be brought along slowly
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

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

Rob Gronkowski 'planning on playing the whole season'
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Speaking to an audience during a football clinic last week, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski said he's "planning on playing the whole season this year." 

Gronkowski is working his way back from a torn ACL suffered last December. He's been working out at the Pats' facility. The typical nine-month timetable to rehab and return from the injury puts him on track to come back just after the team's Week 1 game at Miami. 

Gronk wasn't sure whether or not he'd be ready to participate in the Pats' training camp, which opens soon. 

"I'll sit down with the coaches and training staff and we'll see," he said per ESPN. "I'm just working with the trainers right now, improving every single day and whenever it starts up, whatever the trainers have, whatever the coaches have for me, whatever we feel comfortable with [we'll be] doing as much as possible every day that I can do."

Four-way battle to back up Gronk
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Four players are vying to back up Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, whose surgically repaired knee might not be 100 percent when the season opens, reports the Boston Globe. The paper projects Michael Hoomanawanui to beat out D.J. Williams, Asa Watson and Justin Jones for the No. 2 job.

A five-year vet, Hoomanawanui is a 6-4, 260-pounder who "runs good routes over the middle but does not have the long speed to threaten a defense vertically down the seam," the paper said. He has caught 20 of 26 targets over the past two seasons, with one drop.

Report: Rob Gronkowski 'ready to go in Week 1'
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who is recovering from last season's torn ACL, is expected to be ready for Week 1, reports the team's official website.

The report says "at this point all signs point toward Gronk being ready to go in Week 1." His status for the start of training camp remains uncertain, but it appears as if Gronkowski is headed toward a full recovery.
