After missing the first five games of the 2013 season, it appears as if tight end Rob Gronkowski will finally be returning to the playing field. Pro Football Talk reports that Rob Gronkowski is expected to play this week against the New Orleans Saints, according to a league source.
While he is expected to play, it is to be noted that this is not 100 percent certain.
Gronkowski has missed the first five games as he recovers from offseason back and forearm surgeries. The Patriots hope that Gronkowski can help an offense that is devoid of many offensive weapons. Also Tom Brady will be excited to finally get the chance to work with and throw to Danny Amendola and Gronkowski in a game type situation.
Amendola returned last week but the Patriots limited his snap count in order to ease him back into action.
