The Patriots have been doing pretty well without tight end Rob Gronkowski. They could be doing even better with him.
Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe reports that Gronkowski will try to practice this week. He suffered a broken forearm on November 18, promptly undergoing surgery.
He has missed three games since then, with the Pats outscoring their opponents by 65 total points.Tom Curran of CSN New England said on Tuesday’s PFT Live that Gronkowski is likely to return to the field in the postseason. At which time the Pats will likely be riding a 10-game winning streak, including six straight without him.So, yes, this could indeed be the year that the Pats finally add that fourth Super Bowl trophy.
