Rob Clears Protocol

The lone remaining question mark heading into Super Bowl LII has been answered: Rob Gronkowskihas been cleared from concussion protocol and will play against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.

Gronkowski will meet with the media on Thursday afternoon, a sign that the New England Patriots tight end has cleared the protocol after spending a week and a half under wraps following the AFC Championship Game.

 

coach Bill Belichick said “hopefully he’ll be ready to go” when asked about Rob Gronkowski. Asked about getting him back, Belichick said “it’s good.”

There was little doubt that Gronk was going to miss the Super Bowl. The tight end didn't mince his words Tuesday when he said, "Yes," he expected to play.

Gronk returned to practice on Saturday after suffering a concussion in the title game and was limited on Wednesday.

All the pieces are in place for the Pats, who, with Gronk ready and able, are fully healthy for Super Sunday.
