Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski played Super Bowl XLVI through multiple torn ligaments in his left ankle. The injury rendered Gronkowski largely ineffective, as he managed two catches for 26 yards and was on the field for only eight of the Pats’ final nine snaps against the Giants.
On Friday, February 10, Gronkowski underwent surgery to fix the joint. While he is missing Organized Team Activities, Gronkowski is no longer walking with a limp and says he’s making steady progress.
“Just taking it day by day,” Gronk told the Boston Herald. “Everything is going well, just feeling better every single week.”
According the Herald, “no one on the team appears particularly concerned” with Gronkowski’s recovery. The Patriots wrap up OTAs this week, and will convene again for a mandatory minicamp on June 12.
