We’ve seen how Rob Gronkowski parties when he’s wearing a cast.  He can now go back to partying without one.

Gronkowski has shed the cast that was covering his re-broken forearm, an injury suffered nearly five weeks ago during a divisional win over the Texans.

No cast.  It’s been a lot of weeks now; now I’m just in the rehab part of it,” Gronkowski told the team’s official website, via ESPNBoston.com.  “Getting it better.  Getting it stronger.  Getting it totally healthy now.  Just taking it day by day, basically, with the rehab.  Week by week.  Once I’m 100 percent healthy, I’m definitely going to grind, hit it, hit the upper body, get stronger, and get ready for the season.”

Though the cast has limited his ability to lift weights, cardio hasn’t been a problem.
