INDIANAPOLIS (CBS) – Rob Gronkowski has been saying all week that he’s taking his ankle injury “day by day.” For Wednesday, that meant sitting out of practice.
The tight end did not participate in Wednesday’s practice as he recovers from the ankle injury he suffered against Baltimore in the AFC Championship Game.
“I feel better every day. That’s the goal,” Gronkowski said earlier on Wednesday. “That’s the positive direction you want to be going. You want to be moving forward every single day. If you are going backwards, that’s not good at all. I am feeling good every day. The rehab is going well. Everything is moving forward and we’re on pace of just feeling better every day.”
