The Patriots have practiced so much since the AFC title game, they won’t even do a walk-through on Saturday.
Their walk-through was done Friday, and tight end Rob Gronkowski participated in the light session as expected. He’s officially listed as questionable and coach Bill Belichick told PFWA pool reporter Alex Marvez there were “no setbacks” to the Gronkle this week.
“Dressed in gray sweatpants, gray sneakers and a dark blue t-shirt bearing the popular ‘Yo Soy Fiesta’ phrase he recently coined, Gronkowski moved without a limp when the Patriots executed their offensive plays,” Marvez wrote.
The Patriots will take a team photo on Saturday, but they are done with their on-field work before the big game.
“I think we’re ready to go. We’ve worked hard this week Monday, Wednesday and Thursday in practice, and we had good practices back (in Foxborough, Mass.) last week. We went through some mental-review things out there [Friday],” Belichick said.
The Patriots list 11 players as questionable, including Gronkowski and tackle Sebastian Vollmer (back/illness.) All the Patriots players are expected to be available for the game.
