Gronkowski misses Patriots practice Brady limited as Super Bowl looms

Gronkowski misses Patriots practice Brady limited as Super Bowl looms

It appears as though Rob Gronkowski is going to be ready for Super Bowl Sunday.

Two of the New England Patriots' most important players are getting healthier as they prepare to head to Minneapolis for Super Bowl week. Based on the injury report released by the Patriots, Gronkowski did not participate in Friday's practice due to concussion and will be ruled out if the Super Bowl is played Sunday.

Gronkowski suffered his concussion after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit early in the Patriots' AFC championship game win over Jacksonville.

The Patriots meet the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII on February 4.

He'll need to be cleared and practice before the Patriots can confirm his status. "Obviously it hurts when he's not out there for a lot of reasons, but he's doing the best he can do and we're all hopeful". "It's just a great attribute of his; it always has been since he got here". He hasn't practiced yet since the AFC title game with an ankle injury.

The Patriots depart for Minnesota on Monday. Tom Brady and Devin McCourty have been scratched from the injury report. "We'll stick to football this week, too".

"Gronkowski's presence Saturday represents an important step toward his potential return to the starting lineup for Super Bowl LII".
