Report: Patriots' Rob Gronkowski Will Play In Super Bowl XLVI

For most of the week and a half since the New England Patriots advanced to Super Bowl XLVI, those in the Pats' camp have been cautiously optimistic about Rob Gronkowski and his injured ankle -- he'll probably be play, but he may not be 100 percent. Now, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, we have more definitive answers.

Gronkowski and the Patriots had been playing coy all week about whether the young tight end would practice at all in the days leading up to the big game; now it appears he will. As for the game, it was assumed all along that he'd find a way to play, and our assumptions are now confirmed.

The second-year tight end left in the third quarter of the Pats' 23-20 win over the Baltimore Ravens in last Sunday’s AFC Championship game. He had to be helped off the field by team trainers, favoring his left ankle.

Gronkowski made 90 catches for 1,327 yards for the Patriots this season. He set an NFL record for touchdown receptions by a tight end, with 17.
