    LATEST: Update On Gronks Injury

    I was just watching they brought in that doctor into sunday nfl countdown.
    They said he will play but will definitely be limited.

    He said theres only so much the shot could do. It will wear off during the game.

    He said theres no way it will heal by super bowl and Gronks jumping, lateral movement, and blocking will be a problem for him.

    This is huge news for us G-men. Dont tell me we wouldve stopped him fully even if he wasnt injured. Now if we ever were going to double coverage him, we wont have to.
    If we get Gronk out of the question....BRADY IS IN FOR A HELLUVA NIGHTMARE!!!

    Be physical with him from the opening kick... Make him earn every yard on the field. Hernandez is another guy that can beat you though.. We'll see.

    Question: Will New England tight end Rob Gronkowski play? And, if so, how much will he be handicapped?



    Answer: I wish I could tell you, but I can't. I consulted Dr. Steven Weinfeld, assistant professor of orthopedics at New York's Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, and he said he would be "pleasantly surprised" if Gronkowski plays. Basically, he didn't think there was much chance -- though he did say trainers could stabilize Gronkowski's high ankle sprain with tape and try to reduce the swelling and pain with an injection of an anti-inflammatory. Yeah, I know, Gronk returned after hurting himself last weekend and finished the game, but "often," Dr. Weinfeld said, "the maximum swelling or inflammation doesn't occur for 24 to 48 hours." Meaning? Meaning that Gronkowski's return Sunday was no indication of the severity of the injury. In fact, he might've risked more damage by getting back on the field, but, hey, that can happen when you're trying to win, right? Anyway, let me point out that Pittsburgh center Maurkice Pouncey suffered a high ankle sprain in last year's AFC Championship Game and didn't play in the Super Bowl. Last time I checked, making lateral movements while running wasn't as necessary for an offensive lineman as it was a tight end. If, however, Gronkowski, plays you can figure that his movement will be limited -- which means his effectiveness will be reduced considerably.

    For the last time, it's not faked. Doctors are involved. What's next people saying BB is paying doctors?

    Ringing in the 2012 season!

    Guys. HE IS PLAYING. Trust me...
    No matter what..he will play, hes tough like that.

    But he will be playing very injured. We should make sure he is a nonfactor.

    I think everyone expects him to play, but the real question is will he be as explosive.

    What is your definition of "explosive"? He uses his size well, breaks tackles and is in a dink and dunk system over the middle. If you compare speed of TEs, Vernon Davis has 4.38 sec in 40 yard dash, Jimmy Graham 4.53, Gates 4.5 (in his prime) and Gronk had 4.65.

    When I hear explosive, I am thinking of speed and/or quickness.
