Apparently, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski isn't going to miss the entire 2013-14 NFL season, as some people have speculated in recent weeks. In fact, Gronk is actually ready to go this week and will likely play in the Pats game against the Jets on Sunday.
According to a text sent out by Gronkowski's agent Drew Rosenhaus earlier this morning, Gronk "has now been cleared by all his doctors to play Sunday in the Jets game." Not surprisingly, Bill Belichick is yet to confirm or deny that Gronkowski will play on Sunday and told reporters that an updated injury report for this week will be sent out later today. But at this point, it would be a huge deal if Gronk didn't play on Sunday after Rosenhaus sent out a text about it, so we would expect him to be back on the field for Sunday's game.
You can go ahead and set your fantasy football lineups accordingly now...
