Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski says he will play in Super Bowl LII

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski says he will play in Super Bowl LII

According to Mike Reiss of ESPN, the team said that Gronkowski remains in concussion protocol for the time being.

Gronkowski also told a different reporter he will be playing Sunday.

The New England Patriots quarterback sustained an injury to his right throwing hand that required 12 stitches prior to the AFC Championship Game, but was nevertheless able to lead his side past the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, that only indicates that Gronkowski would NOT play if the game were played on January 28.

The Patriots tight end participated in a "Madden NFL" event with Eagles running back LeGarrette Blount Tuesday night. An independent doctor will have to clear Gronkowski ahead of kickoff for him to be able to take the field for the Pats.

Gronkowski was spotted wearing pads and a helmet loosening up during the media portion of practice.

The Patriots practice for the first time in Minnesota on Wednesday.

The first episode of Tom Brady's documentary "Tom vs". "He's a great player, great person, a great teammate and a big part of what we do".

While the Patriots can and have won without Gronkowski over the past few seasons during his absences with injury, they are a more effective and risky offense with him on the field.
