Rob Gronkowski misses practice again, Brady back to full participation

Rob Gronkowski misses practice again, Brady back to full participation

But the tight end's quick return to practice certainly justifies the Patriots' optimism that characterized most Gronkowski reports since the AFC Championship Game.

It appears as though Rob Gronkowski is going to be ready for Super Bowl Sunday.

Gronkowski did not practice for the third straight day Friday as a result of the head injury suffered in the AFC Championship Game.

The NFL's concussion protocol, which allows players to participate in non-contact practice situations before they are officially cleared. Also in the concussion protocol is rookie defensive lineman Deatrich Wise.

Brady noted that Gronkowski's mere presence elevates the mood on the practice field.

"It's always great to have him out there", quarterback Tom Brady said Saturday. "So it obviously hurts when he's not out there for a lot of reasons, but he's doing the best he can do and we're all hopeful".

With Brady back at full health, the team is focused on Philadelphia, not potential distractions, such as injuries.

New England will practice on Sunday before departing for Minnesota on Monday. "We'll stick to football this week, too. It was a tough call, but you have to go with what they call".

Church drew a 15-yard penalty on the play that knocked Gronkowski out of the game with a concussion.
