According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has chance to return to the field in time for New England’s week three match up with the Buccaneers.
With the Patriots playing their second game on Thursday, and with a truncated week of practice, Gronkowski is not expected back until Week 3 at the earliest. However, should he continue to work back to football shape as he has been, returning to play Tampa is quite likely, barring a setback.
As much as the Pats look forward to getting Gronk back, I’m sure rookie Zach Sudfeld will do a good job in his place.
