Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Not expected to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski isn't expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

There's nothing to be alarmed about here, as Gronkowski being held out of preseason games has become routine. Keeping their star tight end healthy is a priority for the Patriots and there's little upside to exposing Gronkowski to unnecessary injury risk in exhibition games.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Expected to sit out preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski isn't expected to play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Jaguars, reports.

That's nothing unusual, as the Patriots have typically avoided exposing their star tight end to injury during preseason tilts. On the plus side, Gronkowski has been looking good in training camp, plus he's been paying more attention to his diet and tweaked his training routine this offseason, CSN New England reports. Gronkowski is no stranger to injuries, which represents the only real blemish on his fantasy profile, but per the Boston Herald, our No. 1 ranked tight end hopes that his amended training techniques will help prevent avoidable health issues at this stage of his career.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Free of limitations as camp opens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bill Belichick said Gronkowski shouldn't have any limitations during training camp,'s Mike Reiss reports.

Gronkowski was medically cleared from last year's back surgery prior to the start of the offseason program and didn't miss any practices at OTAs or minicamp. The Patriots may limit his training camp reps to ensure he stays healthy, but there's been nothing to suggest he won't participate this weekend when practices in full pads begin.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Back to 100 percent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski was unrestricted at OTAs and said he feels 100 percent healthy again, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Gronkowski is coming off season-ending back surgery, which was his third back operation since 2009, but the All-Pro tight end didn't miss a practice during OTAs, nor was he restricted in what he could do. A full participant through and through, Gronkowski has returned to his usual self, which is a hugely reassuring development for fantasy owners.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Participating in full at OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski (back) was an on-field participant at voluntary OTAs this week,'s Mike Reiss reports.

Less than six months removed from the third back surgery of his career, Gronkowski doesn't seem to have any practice limitations, though the story may be different once the Patriots are in full pads for contact work. While he may still be held out of some drills as a precaution this summer, it seems the tight end has made a full recovery from the injury that ended his 2016 campaign. His ability to actually stay healthy is as big of a concern as ever, which explains why the Patriots gave him an incentive-laden contract restructure earlier in the week.
