Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski took some heat last month when video surfaced showing him dancing and wrestling in Las Vegas while wearing nothing above the waist other than the cast that covered his twice-broken arm. But Gronkowski says he was doing nothing to risk further injury.
Asked about the criticism on Mike and Mike in the Morning, Gronkowski said he appreciates the concern from Patriots fans who don’t want to see him get hurt, but he assures them they have nothing to worry about.
“They’re my fans. They’re looking out for me, they’re big fans of the Patriots, they just want to see the team do well and I totally understand where the fans are coming from,” Gronkowski said. “I would never do that, put myself in jeopardy.”
Gronkowski said the arm that he broke in Week 11 and then re-broke in the playoffs feels good now. And he expects to be fully cleared before the start of organized team activities.
“The arm is feeling way better than it was during the playoffs, and in the regular season when I broke it,” Gronkowski said. “When my trainers give me the good to go, hopefully in the next couple weeks, as soon as possible, I can get going again.”
Patriots fans will be glad when Gronkowski can get going on the field, and not in a Vegas club.
