Gronkowski says there’s no pressure from Patriots

Rob Gronkowski is still a limited participant in practice, but he said Wednesday he’s fully in tune with the team as to the course of his rehab.

Though there were reports of a disconnect between his camp and the team, he shrugged that off while surrounded by a throng of reporters, saying he felt no pressure from the team to return.

No, not at all,” Gronkowski said, via Tom Curran of CSNNE.com. “Everything is great around here. . . .

“Definitely. We were on the same page from the get-to and we’re still on the same page. It’s going good. I’m progressing every week. I’m feeling better every week, getting stronger every week, getting in better condition every week. So I’m still sticking to the motto day-by-day.”

Gronkowski said the toughest part of his recovery has been getting used to football again after an offseason spent recovering from back and arm surgeries.

“Just going out and practicing with the team is helpful every single week to get the chemistry back down, to get the timing of football down,” he said. “Being out of football, the first couple of days out there, I can’t lie, it was like, ‘Whoa, I feel like a rookie real quick,’ because the speed was so quick. But I’m catching up. Everything is going good and everyone is doing fine. It’s just a normal week, working hard and getting better.”

Regardless the interpersonal aspects, or the way the Patriots have managed to withstand his absence thus far, getting him back to normal will be a huge step for an offense lacking targets.

    “Though there were reports of a disconnect between his camp and the team…”

    Never believe anything the Boston Herald says.

    Amendola this week, Gronk next week, and Vereen in four more weeks are all coming back. Dobson and Thompkins are looking good.

    This offense only gets better!

    They’re going to need him when they play the Broncos in the AFC Championship….

    assuming the govt shutdown is over by then.

    right on ampats says:

    Dobson was held in the end zone last Sunday night and then was defenseless and hit illegally on the same play.

    no flag on either foul. officials were in the bag for the Falcons all night. scrimmage spots were atrocious. this crew should be reprimanded it was pathetic and obvious too say the least.

    too say the Pats get all the calls is a joke.

    I want him back as much as the next guy, but they CANNOT RISK ANOTHER RE-INJURY. We are doing well enough, despite mounting injuries, and they simply can’t rush him, or anyone else, back.

    The Boston Herald is as credible as TMZ when it comes to Boston sports.

    The credibility of the convicted plagiarist a.nd well known Patriot hater, Ron Borges, takes another hit. The big story should be, why the media takes this guy seriously.
