FOXBORO (CBS) – For the second straight day, the New England Patriots were without tight end Rob Gronkowski on the practice field.
Gronkowski is listed as “questionable” for Super Bowl XLVI with a high ankle sprain he suffered in the AFC Championship against the Ravens. He was seen in a walking boot after the game, but many believe he will be good to go for the February 5 meeting with the New York Giants.
