Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski says he will play Week 1
Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will play in New England's Week 1 game against the Dolphins, he told reporters Monday. "Definitely not every single snap." he said. "But just get out there, get my feet wet, whatever we game-plan this week, will be good."
Injuries to his knee, back and forearm have limited the 25-year-old to just 18 games in the past two seasons combined. In 2011, Gronkowski set records for most receiving yards (1,327) and touchdowns (17) by a tight end in a season.
