Patriots' Bill Belichick Confirms Rob Gronkowski Will Play In Super Bowl XLVI Against Giants

Forget about all the speculation -- we now have official word from New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. Pats tight end Rob Gronkowski will indeed play in Super Bowl XLVI tonight.

Gronkowski, who injured his left ankle in third quarter of the Pats' AFC Championship Game victory over the Baltimore Ravens, was officially listed as "questionable" on Friday's final injury report before the big game. He has been severely limited in practice all week.

Belichick confirmed today in an interview with NFL Network's Alex Flanagan that Gronkowski is a go for tonight. He did not, however, provide specifics about how much playing time the young tight end will see.

Gronkowski was seen limping earlier this week and wearing a large walking boot. When he appeared Saturday at a pre-Super Bowl photo shoot, he was boot-free and walking well.

Gronkowski made 90 catches for 1,327 yards for the Patriots this season. He caught 17 touchdown passes, an NFL single-season record for a tight end.
