SportsHub- “he wouldn’t say much about his injury, other than that he’s feeling better and is taking it day by day.’I’m not really worried about if I’m not playing or not yet. That’s on Sunday,’ Gronkowski, who was no longer wearing his protective boot, told the reporters crowding his podium at media day. ‘The only thing I’m worried about is Tuesday. Just keep on moving forward, going in a positive direction, and that’s all that counts.’ Gronkowski did say he’s feeling “good,” but admitted to some nagging pain.'[The game is] six days away,’ Gronkowski said. ‘I could be 100 percent by then. I could be 2 percent by then. We’re just taking it day by day. ‘ ‘I’m young. I’m healthy, and I feel blessed like that. Whatever it is, I hope I’m a quick healer.'”
Gronkowski is being very Belichickian in his word choice here. Not revealing much. The Giants must be very confused over there so hopefully this messes up their game plan. Let’s hope Gronk can heal up for the rematch, but even without him the Pats have enough weapons to carve up the Giants secondary. Even if Gronk gets in for a couple snaps and draws a double team he can free up Welker and Hernandez to do their thing. As long as Tom Brady is on the field I think the Patriots can defeat any defense.
Get well soon, Gronk! We’d love to see you out there but if not we can still bring home that 4th Lombardi!
