Drew Rosenhaus: Gronk, Patriots on the same page

AP

Patriots president Jonathan Kraft said over the weekend that there was no rift between the team and tight end Rob Gronkowski about the pace of his return to game action this season.

Gronkowski’s agent Drew Rosenhaus echoed those sentiments, as well as those of Patriots coach Bill Belichick on the difference between practicing and playing in a game on Thursday.

“There’s a huge difference between being cleared to practice and being cleared to play in a game,” Rosenhaus said on WQAM in Miami, via Field Yates of ESPNBoston.com. “I’ve had great dialogue with Coach Belichick and the Patriots’ medical staff and Rob and his family. Everybody’s on the same page, except it’s gotten a lot of play in the media and all these unsubstantiated sources.”

Last weekend, PFT reported that Gronkowski was likely to miss one more game, at most, before making his long-awaited 2013 debut. Rosenhaus said that Gronkowski still has not been cleared by Dr. James Andrews, but that he’ll “hopefully” be back soon and that this Sunday’s date with the Jets remains a possibility should Gronkowski get the necessary medical clearance.

  1. The Pats are 5-1 and just knocked off the previously undefeated Saints. I can’t see why there would be a rift. They’re practically a lock for the playoffs at this point and only going to get better even without Gronk. Let him take his time, feel fully comfortable and healthy, and he’ll be a major post season asset at the least.

  2. It’s Gronkowski’s life, career and arm that’s at stake. Everybody else needs to butt out and let the man heal.

    The O continews to get better, but of greater concern is the loss of Wilfork, Mayo, and possibly Talib. We do have guys who can step up, but you can only loose so many starters before it starts to show.

    That was a hold on JR Gallette. Refs were horrible

    and that was an obvious OPI that should have been called on Kenny Stills in the endzone – more so than the ticky-tack call on Aaron Dobson earlier.
