The New England Patriots' All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski has apparently said he was going to take his time in rehabbing his torn up knee, according to Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman. Gronkowski tore his ACL and MCL in Week 16 of last season in a contest with the Cleveland Browns. Gronkowski’s knee might be healed by the time the New England Patriots begin training cam...
Gronk was the 15th ranked tight end last year, despite playing in only seven games. In those seven games, he posted 39 receptions for 592 yards and four touchdowns. The concern with him at this point is his ability to stay healthy for a full season.
Rob Gronkowski reportedly plans to take it slow in his return to the New England Patriots after knee surgery. Don't be surprised if the tight end starts next season on the physically unable to perform list.
When healthy, Gronk is in the top two. But, I'm really starting to wonder whether he can make it through 16 games without getting hurt and this lands him this low in the rankings. He is a beast when healthy, a major matchup issue for opposing defenses. He will rack up yards and is Tom Brady's prime red zone target for touchdowns.
