Oh, how quickly things can change. Yesterday, Drew Rosenhaus, Rob Gronkowski's agent, told the Joe Rose Show on 560 WQAM in Miami that Gronkowski had not yet been cleared by Dr. James Andrews to play in NFL games. Today, Drew Rosenhaus texted ESPN's Adam Schefter that Gronkowski has now been cleared to play Sunday versus the New York Jets.
While the New England Patriots get back their most important offensive weapon for Tom Brady, one man within the organization will not be happy. That man is head coach Bill Belichick, who is known for being airtight when it comes to revealing information regarding injuries.
After all, the team told players this week to keep quiet about injuries after news leaked this weekend from an unnamed source that players were becoming frustrated that Gronkowski was practicing but not playing.
Gronkowski's return should help ease the fact that wider receiver Danny Amendola may not play this week. While nothing is certain with Amendola, he has not practiced yet this week as he recovers from a concussion.
Finally, the Patriots finally get some good injury news after the team lost nose tackle Vince Wilfork and linebacker Jerod Mayo in consecutive weeks to season ending injuries.
