Description: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee) remains in a "good spot".
Insight: The Patriots acquired tight end Tim Wright on Tuesday, so many experts have begun to wonder if Gronkowski will actually be completely healthy. Schefter says the purpose of the trade was to provide depth and open up some cap space. It also gives Bill Belichick the option to return to its two tight end sets, which the team really hasn't done since Aaron Hernandez's arrest.

Description: Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski participated in 11-on-11 drills for the first time in training camp on Monday according to NESN's Doug Kyed.
Insight: Gronkowski is returning from a torn ACL and MCL he injuried last year against Cleveland in Week 14. A week ago, ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio reported the All-Pro tight end had a 50/50 chance to start Week 1. Gronkowski being cleared to perform 11-on-11 drills is obviously a good sign for the tight end, Tom Brady owners and any owner with other Patriots offensive players for that matter. Still proceed with caution though as Gronkowski has not played a full season since 2011.

Description: According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, a source with knowledge of the situation said that Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is 50-50 to play in Week 1. He tore his ACL and MCL against Cleveland in Week 14.
Insight: Gronkowski hasn't been cleared for contact yet, but when the Patriots kept him off the active/PUP list to start training camp it was thought to be a sign he would be ready for Week 1. Of course, he wasn't placed on the PUP list at the start of last season but he still missed the first six games while recovering from forearm and back surgery. He's an extremely risky pick at his current early third-round ADP.

Description: According to Tom Curran of csnne.com, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee) participated in 7-on-7 workouts at Monday's practice for the first time during training camp.
Insight: Gronkowski tore his ACL and MCL against Cleveland in Week 14, but he's made an impressive recovery and says he's feeling stronger every day. He hasn't been cleared for contact yet but is still expected to be ready for Week 1.

Insight: Gronkowski tore his ACL and MCL against Cleveland in Week 14, but he's made an impressive recovery and says he's feeling stronger every day. He should be ready to go for Week 1 of the NFL season. Gronk has missed 14 games the past two seasons and his early third-round ADP makes him a high-risk, high-reward option.
 
7/31/2014 9:21:00 PM
Description: According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski "doesn't look like someone coming off a torn ACL/MCL."He's been "firing off the line, planting hard, cutting and catching passes from (Tom) Brady."

Description: Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee) has been cleared for training camp and won't be placed on the active/PUP list.
Insight: Gronkowski tore his ACL and MCL against Cleveland in Week 14, but he's made an impressive recovery. Fantasy owners won't have to worry about him being placed on the reserve/PUP list, which would cost him the first six games of the regular season, because he's not eligible. Gronk has missed 14 games the past two seasons and his third-round ADP makes him a high-risk, high-reward option.

Insight: Gronkowski suffered the devastating injury Sunday against the Bengals. He's had to undergo five surgeries (four on his arm, one on his back) since last November and missed the first six games of 2013. Fantasy owners should expect the tight end to be questionable for the start of the 2014 season.
 
12/8/2013 6:45:00 PM
Description: According to Fox's Mike Garafolo, the Patriots believe tight end Rob Gronkowski suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's win over Cleveland.
Insight: This is absolutely devastating news for fantasy owners as Gronk has been the best tight end in football since his return from an arm injury in Week 7. We won't know Gronkowski's official diagnosis until he has an MRI on Monday but fantasy owners should be preparing for the worst.

Description: New England tight end Rob Gronkowski suffered a serious knee injury Sunday against Cleveland and had to be carted off the field.
Insight: If it's as bad as it looked, the Patriots' Super Bowl hopes just took a major hit. Nothing is going right for New England today as they trail 12-0 with just over six minutes remaining in the third quarter.
 
Hot12/1/2013 6:48:00 PM
Description: According to profootballtalk.com, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski's ankle is "fine."
Insight: Gronkowski had six catches for 127 yards and a touchdown Sunday against Houston but came up limping at one point after getting his ankle twisted under a defender. He should be good to go in Week 14 against the Browns.

Description: Patriots QB Tom Brady targeted TE Rob Gronkowski 17 times Sunday against the Jets in Gronkowski's 2013 debut.
Insight: Gronkowski produced eight catches for 114 yards in his long-awaited return to the field after missing the entire season to this point with back and forearm injuries. He'll be a TE1 lock every week as long as he's healthy.

Description: According to Josina Anderson of ESPN, Rob Gronkowski (back, arm) is active for Week 7 against the Jets.
Insight: Gronkowski was finally cleared to play by his team of doctors this week but the final decision was up to Bill Belichick. Gronk is a top-five tight end this week and is a must-start if you own him. He has four touchdowns in five career games against the Jets.
 
10/19/2013 9:29:00 PM
Description: According to ProFootballTalk.com, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (back, arm) has yet to receive official clearance from the Patriots to play Sunday against the Jets.
Insight: Gronkowski was cleared by his team of doctors, so we see no reason why he won't be active if it's up to the Pats. However, fantasy owners should have a backup plan.
 
10/18/2013 10:08:00 AM
Description: According to his agent Drew Rosenhaus, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has finally been medically cleared to return to game action.
Insight: It's great news for Gronk and Tom Brady owners. Gronkowski has been one of the most prolific red zone receivers in football during his short career. He enters Sunday's game against the Jets with 38 touchdowns in 43 career games.

Description: The agent for Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, Drew Rosenhaus, has spoken to try and deflect some of the negative comments concerning his client and it may have actually helped.
Insight: Rosenhaus said his client has not been cleared to play by Dr. James Andrews and when he was, he'll play. Most of the noise had been that it was his, or someone in his entourage, that was keeping him from getting back on the field. It he hasn't been cleared by Saturday, don't expect him to be out there on Sunday.
 
10/13/2013 11:57:00 AM
Description: Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (arm) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game against New Orleans.
Insight: Well that settles that. NBC's ProFootballTalk reports that Gronkowski will return in Week 8 at the latest but given the events that have transpired, we don't know what to believe anymore. All fantasy owners can do with Gronk is wait and hope for the best.
