Rob Gronkowski, Deatrich Wise, Malcom Brown all at Patriots practice

Getty Images

The Patriots are getting healthier with a week to go before Super Bowl LII.

New England tight end Rob Gronkowski is on the practice field today. Gronk also was on the field yesterday, and although he hasn’t been officially cleared from the league’s concussion protocol, he seems a near certainty to get cleared in time to play in the Super Bowl.

Also on the field is Patriots defensive end Deatrich Wise, who is also in the league’s concussion protocol after suffering a concussion in the AFC Championship Game. Wise is a rookie who has played in all 18 games for the Patriots and is expected to play in the Super Bowl as well.

Malcom Brown, a starter at defensive tackle who suffered a foot injury, is practicing as well. The Patriots should have all three players on the field against the Eagles in a week.

  1. A HEALTHY Patriots team is NOT what any opposing team or their fans want to see….
    Imagine if Edelman, Cannon & Hightower were good to go as well….
    Never mind the others still on IR……
    I wish Carson Wentz was healthy… but Foles has been playing lights out….
    Should be a good game….
    Go Pats!!!

    Deatrich Wise is slowly growing into a consistent pass rusher for the Pats. I’m excited to see him after a full offseason with the team.

    he and adam butler have been awesome as rookies. to take on that many snaps and look that good? adam butler made bb kick kony ealy to the curb and both butler and wise demolished ealy’s production, bb only lost 8 spots in the draft ovee being the best gm ever, ealy is cooked for good in the nfl because his ego got too big, and here we are in another super bowl.

  9. I think the bye week before the Super Bowl is good. It helps make sure the product both teams field is the healthiest it possibly can be. Win or lose I am damn proud of the Eagles. Could you envision the Patriots in the super bowl if Brady got hurt week 14? That should be a resounding no. No excuses if philly loses because injuries are part of the game, but still impressed with this team’s perseverance through adversity!

    I’m not here to claim victory, but I think one thing people are overlooking is the fact that eagles have arguably the best O-line in the league with the #3 ranked rushing team. While pats have the 31st ranked run D giving up an average of 4.7 ypc. Eagles dominated the time of possession all season long. Pats will really have to play the line of scrimmage. Better watch out for play action and those rpo’s. And i heard pats D is kinda undersized compared to most teams. Ajayi n blount have to take advantage of that.

    Patriot hater logic exposed again…

    Must be a new concept… only this year…just because the Patriots are playing…which allows the NFL 2 weeks to hype the superbowl…and to efficient marketing… merchandising… printing …and ticket sales… travel arrangements …. etc… LOL

    It must also be a new discovery in physics which allows the Patriots to have to weeks rest before the superbowl…without affording the same time off to the Eagles.

    It’s amazing that people some people still wonder why it was so easy for the marketing powers of NFL to convince so many dimwits that the laws of physics don’t apply to footballs when they are used in NFL football stadiums.

  12. The pet is stockpiling the anti-Patriot rhetoric as this final week begins, hopefully prior to the unveiling of an official game score prediction. Right on time, and it will be glorious.

    It’s much like building a house of cards on top of a base of matchsticks held together with used Dubble Bubble.

    No matter how much you ridicule the post, it doesn’t change the veracity of it.

    Just thought you might want to know.

  15. The Patriots do cheat. Every single game. They’re supposed to all have one arm tied behind their backs to create parity. I think Ted Wells needs to investigate. Is it because there’s not enough yarn to tie with? Fishing line? What gives?

  16. “Pats will really have to play the line of scrimmage. Better watch out for play action and those rpo’s. And i heard pats D is kinda undersized compared to most teams. Ajayi n blount have to take advantage of that.”

    Thanks for coming to talk actual football !

    I think the Blount / Ajayi combo is very similar to the Fournette / Yeldon one the Jags have. They’ll have the opportunity to make some plays, no question. I think the more important matchup is Foles and the Philly receivers vs a very good Pats secondary. If the secondary can avoid big gains on passes I think the Pats can afford to give up a few good runs as long as don’t break free for long TDs. Crucial to stopping Blount is getting him hit in the first 5-10 yards. He doesn’t have a great burst but once he gets a head of steam up he’s very tough to bring down.

    The Pats secondary is pretty good at tackling, and at smelling out screens to the flat. I’m less worried about that then long bombs.

    Eagles look like a great team and should be a good game. I don’t expect a blowout by either team. I would be very happy if just for once the Pats can get some points on the board in the first quarter of a Super Bowl.

    It should also be noted that Roger Goodell handed an advantage to 31 teams, including the Eagles, when it comes to playing against the Patriots. Let’s not forget that the Patriots are now playing without their 1st round draft pick from the 2016 NFL Draft and without their 2nd round draft pick from the 2017 NFL Draft.

    And please consider the 2 missing Patriots when you start comparing your teams roster to the Patriots and understand that if the Patriots are able to win…that it was even more impressive after the deck was stacked against them.

  23. I get it. Patriots are a great team and belichick and brady are the best ever. What i dont get is why some pats fans act as if they win the super bowl every year and they can’t be beaten. Brady has been in the league for what, 18 years? Minus 1 season lost because of injury so I’ll say 17 years. He’s won 5 titles. That means he’s lost 12 times, right? Just talk some football. It gets annoying when you guys act as if philly has no shot. Even in their SBs, the biggest point differential was 6 pts I think, which was an overtime game. You can try to convince yourself it’s over already but we all know you’re in for a fight next Sunday. GO EAGLES!!

    Quite sure …he won’t be AS…..”relaxed”

    Also, it isn’t about fans “getting their wish”. I’m sure fans just watch the games and don’t see anything THIS SEASON that should cause this widespread panic the media and the myopic NE fans think that is deserved.

    Say what you want, but #Tommy needed an ishload of help to go his way (..ie..Atlanta’s offense going into a shell, Hightower’s TO, Edelman’s catch flat on his back to name just a few ) to even be in a position to win the last Super Bowl he participated in.

    And, when he didn’t get those breaks of fortune (ie…Tyree’s helmet catch, Samuel’s dropped INT, 2 pt safety for intentionally grounding a pass from the end zone on the game’s opening play..Welker’s corkscrew drop..etc) …and the opposing team did THEIR jobs (..ie..relentless pressure from the DL) …things didn’t turn out his way.

    Philadelphia has the same type of defense to cause him the same kind of issues and #Tommy doesn’t have near the talent on offense (much less the OL) to defend against it.

    And we’re not talking about Jacksonville, thanks. Philadelphia didn’t get a forty burger dropped on them by a 3 win San Francisco team. Didn’t happen.

    Thanks for trying tho

    The Eagles kept quiet and benefited when the NFL cheated the Patriots. That means that the Eagles supported cheating.

    The Steelers are rivals of the Patriots but an intelligent Steelers fan understood science and questioned what was being reported. That Steeler fan was objective enough to want to test the “cheating” claims for himself.

    That Steeler fan did tests using a pressure gauge and an NFL football. He filmed the whole thing and posted the video online. The video can be found on the popular online video site. Just search for “DEFLATE GATE & WHY SCIENCE SAYS THE PATRIOTS DID NOT TAMPER WITH FOOTBALLS”

    Consider it even for destroying all the tapes from a multi year, orchestrated cheating scandal involving the HC.

  32. Regular season stats really don’t matter at this point. There are so many people out of each lineup that it is an apples to oranges comparison. Philly does have a good team, but let’s not OVERSTATE how good their lines are. This isn’t the 90’s Cowboys Oline or the Purple People Eaters, either. We can armchair QB this all we want, but all it takes is a couple turnovers and the game can swing one way or the other. I know the Pats can win if they lose the turnover battle. I am not as sure about Philly. I know the Pats have played better defenses in their Super Bowl runs, too.

    These are the two best teams in the league and all the debate is moot when that ball gets kicked off in a week.

  33. I beg your pardon. The Iggles have been involved in the following cheating scandals:

    PEDsgate – players suspended

    Just like 32% of the league teams have players that are suspended for PEDs. Nice try. Keep trying.

    Tryoutsgate – Iggles lost 3rd round pick.

    Did you just manifest this in your own private reality..or do you care to substaniate it with any….ya know…..facts?

    Bountygate – not punished but Buddy Ryan put out contracts.

    I guess that Week 1 demolition was a mirage. Didn’t happen. That is… to anyone that needs to forget it.

    Regardless of how far in the past it was, the blueprint was set.

    Philadelphia’s offense can spread out that NE defense and create opportunities with RPOs. Much like the way Jacksonville did for most of the game. I guess that didn’t happen either.

  37. Firecracker, lol way to reach. I was actually referring to the 2 years of lost draft picks(2016-17) that the pats fan was referring to. Buddy Ryan contracts? Lol wow I think every team back then did that kinda stuff. Are u also gonna say bednarik was cheating because he targeted Gifford?
    Lol. You DO know your team has a reputation of cheating, right? Don’t get mad. Your fellow pats fan is the one who wanted to bring it up. And an illegal tryout in 1980 is a lot worse than what the patriots have done, huh?

  38. If the eagles lose (Which I think they have a slightly better chance of losing) you will not hear me cry about injuries. They’re part of the game and on any given Sunday anyone can win. I just hope for a great game. I think on paper the patriots are a better team overall but eagles strengths as a team (DL, OL, running game) stack up well against the patriots team this year. That might be our saving grace or it might not make a different… I have no idea. Botttom line is patriots are the exception with their continued success and experience in a league with some parity. NO one has achieved what they have. I ha e a lot of respect for them (even worth all the scandals) they would still be where they are now with the history they have. That being said go eagles and may the best team come next Sunday for 60 minutes win!!

    —————————————————————————
    I wasn’t talking about the patriots missing players due to injury… That’s part of the game and should be expected…The Patriots are missing their 2016 1st round draft pick and their 2017 2nd round draft pick because the draft picks were stolen by Roger Goodell because he wanted to give 31 other teams an advantage. It’s called league parity…and its known that the league profits more ($$$$) when more fan bases believe that their team has a legitimate shot at a championship.

    Convincing a hoard of dimwits to believe that footballs are exempt from the laws of physics when they are used in NFL stadiums was easy. Smearing the reputation of one team and one player was a small price to pay in order to get a pay raise for Roger. Many people never even noticed when the NFL failed to announce the results of the 2015 PSI testing. The NFL would have had to give the 2 draft picks back to the Patriots if that information was shared with football fans. League parity ($$$$) was more important than having transparency and integrity of the game.

  40. “I know the Pats can win if they lose the turnover battle. I am not as sure about Philly. I know the Pats have played better defenses in their Super Bowl runs, too. ”

    You’re saying that if the Eagles get two more turnovers than the Patriots, Patriots could still win?

    And you should be taken seriously? Gotcha. Even though the Eagles already did lose the turnover margin, by 2, already ONCE these playoffs….and won.

    But they couldn’t against this defense. Right. Makes perfect sense.

    1. The tapes were not all destroyed and in fact Jay Glazer still has some. They were also shown publicly at a press conference.

    2. It is not and has never been illegal to steal or record signals in the NFL and is not to this day. There was nothing multi year or cheating about it except for 1 camera being 30′ out of position for 1/2 of 1 game, the first one of 2007 after the parameters or where you can tape from were changed.

    That’s not a fair trade. The Patriots were already over punished for not following the poorly worded memo.

    A memo from 2007 year was not followed in the same year the way that Roger Goodell intended it to be followed. All taping prior to that memo was allowed by NFL rules. The memo wasn’t even an official rule change…it was a memo from the commissioner of the NFL. Taping is still allowed by NFL rules.

    The camera was out of position from the designated allowed position for a portion of the 1st half the Patriots first game of the 2007 NFL season. I guess some people consider 30 minutes to be a “multi year, orchestrated cheating scandal”. You can’t make this stuff up.

    Most people don’t still bring it up because it was so long ago….plus it was just a petty tyrant overreacting when he perceived that his authority was being challenged. Some jealous haters still want mention it years later and are so desperate to call it “cheating” because they are lame and want to discredit the Patriots.

    Could they still win? Absolutely. But the Patriots aren’t blowing Philadelphia out. It is much more likely the other way around.

  45. “I guess that Week 1 demolition was a mirage. Didn’t happen. That is… to anyone that needs to forget it.”

    Week 1. Are you seriously gonna use week 1 as a reference? The Patriots never resemble anything remotely close to what they are in week 1 compared to the playoff versions of themselves. Not relevant.

    Just make sure you pay attention to the times this Sunday where Belichick outcoaches J Peterman in key situations. This is how the Pats win the close ones.

    Oh yeah, and Brady.

  46. The Patriots are a better team overall so the Eagles coaching staff will somehow have to come up with a game plan that will beat a Belichick coached team. I don’t believe Pederson will be able to and the Patriots will win comfortably.

  47. did a millennial above just say the “blueprint” was “set in week 1”?

    lol!

    this is why fanbases go clinically insane during an nfl season and
    into a super bowl.

    prepare for disappointment off that kind of delusion

    Patriot hater logic exposed again…

    Must be a new concept… only this year…just because the Patriots are playing…which allows the NFL 2 weeks to hype the superbowl…and to efficient marketing… merchandising… printing …and ticket sales… travel arrangements …. etc… LOL

    It must also be a new discovery in physics which allows the Patriots to have to weeks rest before the superbowl…without affording the same time off to the Eagles.

    It’s amazing that people some people still wonder why it was so easy for the marketing powers of NFL to convince so many dimwits that the laws of physics don’t apply to footballs when they are used in NFL football stadiums.

    You can call it ‘disrespect’ if you want. I just call it an evaluation.

    I don’t see a great deal of talent on that roster and I damn sure didn’t see anything outstanding during the playoffs. Anyone that has been looking from the outside of Patriot Nation can objectively see that this is the least talented roster of ANY of the Super Bowl teams with #Tommy and Hoodie. If they were honest with themselves, your fans would agree.

    You can talk about coaching all you want. But, even you OWN coach will agree; it comes down to players. I just think the media is riding this aura and mystique narrative to the hilt and everyone’s buying in. I don’t see anyone on the roster with the caliber of McGinest, Bruschi, Harrison or even Samuel. I don’t see anyone the talent of even lesser players like Browner, Hightower, or even Chandler Jones. (Hey, whatever happened to that guy?).

    I’m just not concerned with the likes of Rex Burkhead or Duane Allen. Gronk is going to play. I’m not going to dispute that. But do you think he’s going to be a major factor? I remember he played injured before in this game. How did that turn out? Cooks looks like a threat, but there have been other threats that have been neutralized by Philadelphia’s defense.

    Someone objective could look at the last two Super Bowls New England has been in and they could easily conclude, the outcome could have gone the other way very easily. But it didn’t . The credit goes to #Tommy on that and it should. At least for one of them.

    But don’t forget, this defense has allowed 52 points in their last two Super Bowls, 4 tds, a 100 yd rusher in one and 100 yd receiver in the other to a guy that hasn’t started a game in the league, before or since. But against Hoodie’s defense, he couldn’t be stopped. The fatal flaw for both of the Patriots opponents in those games was simple:

    They didn’t play for the full 60 minutes. One couldn’t even make it through the last two seconds of the game.

    I’m not saying Philadelphia will blow them out. That’s your interpretation. I said if any team would get blown out, it would be New England. Because I’m definitively saying that Philadelphia will not- N-O-T- get blown out. That’s a guarantee. And, objectively speaking, if there was a team that was on the verge OF getting blown out in their last two Super Bowls, it was New England. If you think #Tommy is going to save the day, yet again. That’s fine.

    You go with that.

    It should also be noted that Roger Goodell handed an advantage to 31 teams, including the Eagles, when it comes to playing against the Patriots.

    I mean…if you have to just spit out lies…that’s on you. But Jenkins never said that. Produce the quote of what he exactly said. Because he, nor did anyone on the team, guarantee victory. But that’s still a nice try.

    And I know it’s lost on some that can’t comprehend ( shocker!), but when Malcolm Jenkins states “It’s on us”, again….I know it’s hard for some to understand but he was simply stating, if they were to produce the upset, it’s on THEM to make it happen.

It’s nice that your daddy or grampy had tickets to the Pats, too bad they couldn’t also have taught you some manners and when to admit you are in the wrong. Browner played every defensive snap of that game, they were never ‘without’ him. BTW the ‘wagon’ I rode survived trips to Nickerson Field and Fenway long before it rode into Foxboough. Man up son.

    trollaw you got called out for posting something foolish as you often do. It’s nice that your daddy or grampy had tickets to the Pats, too bad they couldn’t also have taught you some manners and when to admit you are in the wrong. Browner played every defensive snap of that game, they were never ‘without’ him. BTW the ‘wagon’ I rode survived trips to Nickerson Field and Fenway long before it rode into Foxboough. Man up son. Troll less, learn more.

    i am sorry, but i didn’t called out for anything

    browner was not involved in such an obvious man matchup with the tallest seahawks wr.

    it was bizarre and it appeared like browner did not exist for about 5 mins of the game, as wilson easily
    lobbed the ball over a 5’9 person’s head

    diehard pats fans do not like bandwagoners. just go away with your sad life

    do you have any friends or are strangers here the people you want yo be your friends? lmao

  87. If I were TheBisonLimpeth I’d bet the money line on Philly. Who needs the points? The Pats are more likely to get blown out by Philly right? Look how badly NE got crushed by KC last September, compare that to the total domination Philly had over KC and it’s a no brainer.

  88. Tylawspick6. You did post that Browner was riding the bench, just own it, everyone makes mistakes.

    Commentwaitingdeletion. Get over it already, everyone read his error, no need to get nasty.

    Go Pats!

    That is probably the exact opposite of what the Eagles need to do to win this game, and I do give them a decent shot. The Eagles fans bringing up the quality of their O line and bruising running backs have merit in that argument. The Eagles need to control the ball, put together long sustained drives and wear down the Pats D. If they win I think it will be with under 40 points TOTAL scored in the game, like 20-17 or so. A shootout favors the Pats. I think the Patriots prevail, but anybody on either side of the fence that thinks it will be a blowout seems off the mark.

  90. @idislikespeciousness, the kid’s graceless demeanor gives us all a bad name. That irks me in a way no Pats hater ever could. However if he just owned it and manned up I’d have gone quietly on my way. Since taking him to task for his ill manners and boorish behavior is being perceived as nasty I will defer to your request. I just find it disappointing that we as a group are quick to beat down ‘outside’ trolls but don’t police our ‘own’ that play no small part in creating the antipathy towards Pats fans that is rampant here.

  91. How many sacks did the eagles allow and how many did the Patriots allow?
    How many sacks did phillys defense get and how many did the Patriots get?
    How many TDs did phillys Rbs get both rushing and recieving compared to the Patriots?
    How many rushing TDs allowed?
    Whose defense improved more since the beginning of the year?
    Whose offense is ranked higher?

    We Patriots fans get it..you are excited by beating the vikings,handily I might add.But keenums cinderella story ended and he became what he always was,a journey man QB.Now it’s Foles turn.
    I like how your coach and QB say that it’s all about “our team” and our”focus” is our team..but then they go on and talk about the “mystique” of the Patriots and all the distractions that they themselves said they are not thinking about.
    Be happy..going from worst in the NFC EAST to second in the NFL in one year is still good.I know that you think if you keep saying” our oline,RBs,defense etc.”enough times it makes it true but it doesn’t.Just read the 1st paragraph.

  92. I hope Gronk can play. He is a game changer and it will make the game more enjoyable to watch. Still think the Eagles have a chance to win and hope they do. But Gronk is a beast and it’s fun to watch him play. Folks can hate all you want but every one of us would love to have him playing for our favorite team.

  93. “He’s on the field+not officially cleared=cheating”

    Actually that shows you have zero understanding of the concussion protocol and the 5 steps the players go through to be fully cleared.

    Among those levels are ones that allow the player on the field when he is partially cleared, but cannot participate in contact drills and certain other activities.

    You want to hate the Pats fine, go right ahead. But do so from a position of knowledge rather than ignorance. A simple search of the net would have show you the various steps the protocol requires.

  94. I think you’ll see a heavy dose of Gronk on Sunday, but just when you think you’ve figured out a Belichick game plan, a guy named James White (who America had never heard of) goes out at grabs 14 catches in a Super Bowl win. They don’t care who the hero is. They don’t force the issue.

    The real answer is that the Patriots will adjust during the game to take what is being shown to them. Brady will go to the open guy. It might be that the game is boring and low scoring until the 3rd or 4th quarter, and if it is, put your money on Brady and Belichick vs. the immortal Foles and Peterson there.
