Patriots coach Bill Belichick isn’t exactly going to fill up a reporter’s notebook with information about one of his injured players, but to the extent that he discussed tight end Rob Gronkowski’s return to practice today, Belichick sounded positive.
Pool reporter Alex Marvez spoke with Belichick after the practice session at the Colts’ facilities, and Belichick said things went well, but the real key is seeing whether Gronkowski feels tomorrow like he overdid it today.
“It was good,” Belichick said. “It was fine. We’ll see where he is tomorrow — whether that set him back, whether it didn’t and whether he’s able to continue to progress on a daily basis. But it was a good test for him, too, at least. At least he was out here and did some things to see how it feels. We’ll see how it goes.”
Belichick described the Patriots as having “good energy” and added that “They worked hard.”
