New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick announced during a press conference tight end Rob Gronkowski has been cleared by doctors for football.
Gronkowski, who is recovering from a torn right ACL, will not be placed on the physically unable to perform list, according to Belichick.
Before the injury, Gronkowski had 592 receiving yards and four touchdowns in seven games last season. Injuries have limited him to 18 games the past two seasons after he played in all 16 games in each of his first two seasons.
