BOSTON (CBS) – Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski may be able to practice but he might not be ready to take part in the Super Bowl hype.
Gronkowski is still in the concussion protocol after he was knocked out of the AFC Championship game January 21.
He returned to practice Saturday, but he is not expected to participate in Super Bowl Opening Night Monday after the Patriots arrive in Minneapolis for Super Bowl LII, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
That could change though, if the doctors clear Gronkowski.
Gronk did make a brief appearance on stage at the Patriots Super Bowl send-off rally Monday morning, but he did not address the crowd.
