Gronkowski says ankle feels “better every single week”

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.

    As long as he can cut a rug on that ankle, that’s all the dancing Queen needs.

    And also, today he had his head shaved to benefit kids with cancer. He’s a big goofball, but most of us Pats fans love him.

    Injury also didn’t affect keg stand or beer bong abilities either

    This is news, his ability to heal?

    As long as that ankle is good enough to bust some dance moves right after losing the biggest game of your life….

    In the last decade, the Patriots have averaged a Super Bowl appearance every two years. I’m sure Gronk is going to get plenty more opportunities to play in the biggest game of his life.

    No one’s worried, but they keep stockpiling TE’s

  10. mrconnors says: Jun 3, 2012 3:15 PM

    Mullman thinks he’s a system TE, because as we all know, they don’t have any good players.

    14-2 and 13-3 with a system QB, system WR’s, system TE’s, no defense, overrated coach. Imagine if they had a decent player ot two.

    No problems. That why they call him Gronk and not Gripe.

  12. tomeffnbrady says: Jun 3, 2012 4:21 PM

    wish there was some tape of him running/working out like they have for AP.

    course its the PATS so we wont see any…. worst thing about being a pats fan.

    So can he outrun Chase Blackburn now?

    anyone else think Bernard Pollard is gonna get tuned up this year? Look what this boy can do to the likes of Suggs…Pollard might be a good candidate for the new anti injury pilot armor program the NFL surely has on the horizon…

    ……was on the field for only eight of the Pats’ final nine snaps against the Giants.

    That statement did little to prove the point you were trying to make. Wow, he took ONE WHOLE play off in the last 9 snaps.

    Gronk stays healthy throughout his career,,,and all TE records will fall. Gonzalez a very distant second.

    His best moment was pancaking Suggs in AFC Champ game. Suggs was on his back fast.

    Gronk is a stud…and NFL hasn’t seen a tE like him before.

    Yes they have, his name was Mike Ditka and he too was dominant both catching and blocking.

    Before my time but that’s what the stats and people who were around then say.

    2 points:

    a) Gronk looked pretty healthy along with half of the rest of the team at the Celts game on Sunday night (and so did Hoodie’s lady, by the way.)

    b) Look at the pic on this article. Gronk looks like either a terminator from the future, or a video-game character. He is truly a beast. Hope he stays healthy.
