On a positive note, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said Gronkowski has ditched his red no-contact jersey. On Dec. 8 game against Cleveland, he tore both the ACL and MCL in his right knee, and also suffered a concussion on the play. "I officially got the word today that I was cleared, so it was super nice to hear from the doctors".

Gronkowski suffered a concussion in the Patriots' 24-20 AFC Championship win over Jacksonville on January 21, after a second-quarter helmet-to-helmet hit by Jacksonville safety Barry Church, who was later fined $24,309 for the hit.

"I was able to do everything that I was asked to do out there on the field", Gronkowski said. He only had one catch in the game for 21 yards before he was removed from action due to the hard hit. Church was flagged for unnecessary roughness and was fined $24,309 for the hit.

"It's a split-second to make a decision", Gronkowski said. "I'll be full go, ready to roll". I knew it was going to happen. It's just part of the game.


The Patriots managed to rally in the 4th quarter to beat the Jaguars without him.

Gronkowski (concussion) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports. Fans were able to interact with the players through the livestream channel.

"It feels good", said Gronkowski, in reference to being cleared from the NFL's concussion protocol on Thursday so he could play on Sunday. But Gronkowski continued to participate in non-contact drills during practice this week, indicating that his return was imminent. "We've been having a couple of good practices this week, and it was good to be out there with the boys, getting the chemistry down". "I'll be ready to roll". We knew the whole time I would be good to go.

Watch Inside The Huddle every day, 6.30pm, on Sky Sports Action with Neil, Jeff and a host of special guests. Gronkowski was suspended for one game for a the cheap shot. Veteran safety Malcolm Jenkins is likely to be matched up against Gronkowski on most plays. Give Tom Brady another weapon such as Gronkowski and you have a Philadelphia defence that may be stretched to the max. But the Patriots tight end doesn't blame Church at all for what he did.
