The New England Patriots' forgotten tight end for the past few weeks, Rob Gronkowski, is making strides towards his recovery from back surgey last month, reported Ed Werder of ESPN. While there's still no timetable for his return, he has resumed light workouts in an effort to be ready for the start of the season on Sept. 8th. Werder says he's "looking good" and making "significant progress,"  according to "people who have been working with Gronkowski. Gronk was last seen being photographed at a Fourth of July cookout in his native Buffalo looking a little thin presumably due to his inability to lift weights. This latest news should give the Patriots and fans some hope in salvaging the 2013 season after key losses in the Tom Brady target department. Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd, and of course Aaron Hernandez are all gone, leaving Gronkowski as the only familiar face for Brady when he starts the season.
