While there have been various reports saying that Rob Gronkowski is expected to play this week against the New Orleans Saints, the word's from Gronkowski's lips paint a different story.
Field Yates of ESPNBoston.com is reporting that Gronkowski told reporters earlier today that he is still "day-to-day" as the Patriots prepare for the Saints.
Specifically, Gronkowski gave reporters a very Patriots-like answer as he revealed very little about his status. "It's basically nothing new," he told reporters. "I mean, I'm just working hard every week, working hard out at practice, and nothing's changed, we're day by day, like we've been from the very beginning."
Gronkowski would give the Patriots offense a huge boost as they currently rank 21st in the NFL in passing this season. He would also likely open up opportunities for other receivers such as Danny Amendola, Kenbrell Thompkins and Aaron Dobson as well.
