Super Bowl XLVI is just around the corner and New England Patriots fans around the country have started to get a bit nervous about the health and status of arguably their best receiver in tight end Rob Gronkowski. The early reports of Gronkowski’s high ankle sprain were that he was day-to-day and that the Pro Bowl tight end should be good to go for the big game against the New York Giants on Sun. Feb. 5, but there has been a lot of doubt about just how injured the league’s best tight end is heading into Super Bowl Sunday in Indianapolis.
Fortunately, just a few days away from Super Bowl XLVI, Rob Gronkowski is in Indianapolis and walking around without his walking boot. That is nothing but good news for the New England Patriots as it means that their star tight end will be on the gridiron this Sunday and will continue to be viable option for superstar quarterback Tom Brady in the Patriots’ offense.
Whether or not Rob Gronkowski will be 100% or anywhere near it remains to be seen. There is no question that this up-and-coming tight end is as tough as they come as he was able to return to the game against the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship game after injuring that ankle, but two weeks without practice and swelling around that ankle could hinder his play in the Super Bowl.
Needless to say, the Patriots coaching staff is excited to see Gronkowski walking around without the help of a boot. The one person that is happier than anyone else is Tom Brady with Rob Gronkowski being arguably his new favorite target in the passing game. This could change the Giants’ game plan on defense, but should still make this a very competitive and compelling game.
