Get the latest on Gronkowski and Peyton during Pro Bowl pregame

R. Gronkowskiwalk AP

We have a fix for everyone missing football this Sunday.

Our Pro Bowl coverage kicks off on NBC and NBCSports.com at 7 p.m. ET.  Florio and Peter King will hop on the pregame show with the latest on Rob Gronkowski’s ankle and Peyton Manning’s future.

You can watch the game live online and chat with Florio during the entire telecast.

I watched Gronkowski get off the Patriots team plane just a few minutes ago, and he was wearing a walking boot. It also seemed like he was trying to prove a point.

Gronkowski walked as fast as possible without a limp to a waiting bus. You wouldn’t know he was hurt if not for the boot. One of the NFL Network analysts said he had a “nice gait.”

Yep, it’s Super Bowl week.

    It’s a lot different trying to walk without a limp compared to trying to run and make cuts. Just ask Big Ben.

    Listen to bigblue

    shhhhhhhh

    Gronk is hurt. He won’t play.

    Giants fans repeat Gronk won’t play. Don’t forget the light the candles.

    This is all part of Belichick’s plan. The Giant’s will put single coverage on him and Gronk will light them up. Go Pats Go!

    Meh.. Big Ben’s injury looked worse than what happened to Gronk.. but its true, its hard to run and make cuts with a high ankle sprain

    Ben’s injury was way worse than Gronks.. Gronk even returned the to game

    Keep praying he isn’t a factor Giants fans, its your only hope

    Pats shouldn’t be there – 99% of NFL quality wide receivers catch that ball Lee Evans dropped, clutch it tightly to their chest, drop to the turf and curl into a ball, TD scored and Super Bowl ticket stamped.

    Pats’ play calling, strategy, and defense were losers – the Ravens simply failed to do what any other group of professionals would do – clutch a winning TD pass, kick a game-tying chip shot.

    Grimly at 75% is better then most tds in the league. Giants will not over look him.

    I just don’t see how he can get down the middle of the field. I saw this injury will require surgery in the offseason.

    If he plays, he plays. I’m not going to lose any sleep worrying about Gronk playing. You would rather play and win (or lose) against the other teams best players anyway.

    It really doesn’y matter. Pats have no running game and pitiful secondary will get lit up Giant receivers and Eli. You only get to play Flacco once…

    Funny that you mention that, since the Pats running game is rated higher than the giants, who are 32nd in the league at 3.5 yards per carry.

    Also, your D is allowing 5 yards per carry over the last three games.

    The Law Firm is going to take NY’s defense to court next week.

    give it a rest already…the giants survived him in the regular season when their defense was playing pretty lousy and he was fully healthy. im sure they’ll be able to deal with him again, especially at 75-80%.

  13. pacificnw7722 says: Jan 29, 2012 6:38 PM

    GRONK will have to stay in to block…..mark it!

  14. xtb3 says: Jan 29, 2012 6:43 PM

    Bernard Pollard is going to inform the Giants just how to tackle him and Welker and Brady.

    gronk will be in the house come gametime

  16. august1969 says: Jan 29, 2012 7:12 PM

    if the Giants RBs can’t run, they lose.

    Just like the Giants. 99% of NFL quality kick returners don’t muff 2 kicks in one game. He holds onto the ball and takes 10 points off the board for the GMen. Ticket stamped for the Niners.

    In my college days, as a WR, I had a light ankle sprain, and I couldn’t cut, or pivot, and going straight hurt too. So he better hope it doesn’t get any worse. Blue 17, Puts 14.

    Similar, but not the same. Giants still had multiple chances to tie or win the game, whereas the Pats would have been behind with 15 seconds left. Game over.

    Fact is, if you look at the Pats’ game plan and execution in its entirety, it is a losing plan and a losing effort.

    Spin It anyway You want….he dropped the pass…OR the Pat’s DBack made a GREAT PLAY….either way…..The Pat’s are in INDY and the Ravens(well some of them) are in Hawaii…..

    I had a high ankle sprain once. As soon as that boot was on and strapped up tight, I could walk without a limp (as much as you can in that boot) with ease.
    But take the boot off, Big-time pain.

    @rexismybff

    losing gameplan and execution? I think sterling moore executed a swat perfectly because ol boy didnt catch it. they won the game. and the jets didn’t even make the playoffs. poor season plan, execution, and weight loss strategy by fatboy

    Yeah, but they ARE there and that’s really all matters. The goal is winning the Super Bowl. it doesn’t matter HOW they got there, so nothing you say means anything.
