Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski went through his second consecutive day of limited practice on Thursday. Gronkowski just started practicing once again late last week as his broken left forearm continues to heal. Gronkowski has 748 yards and 10 touchdowns on 53 catches in 10 games this season.
It's the Patriots, so you know how this story will go tomorrow: Gronkowski will be listed as limited in practice and then questionable on the official injury report. Gronkowski may turn out to be a game-time decision, but I tend to side with ESPN's Adam Schefter, who said that Week 17 is when the team is targeting Gronkowski's return. There's no reason for the Patriots to bring their stud tight end back too quickly, especially with what should be an easy business trip to Jacksonville coming up.
