As it relates to the health of New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, there’s some good news and some bad news. The good news is that he practiced on Saturday and is reportedly feeling well. The bad news is that despite that, he remains in the concussion protocol.
Rob Gronkowski remains in concussion protocol, although he was seen in the #Patriots locker room for the first time this week during the portion that was open to the media. He was in good spirits and indicated he’s feeling well, but was still off limits for interviews.

The general feeling since the injury has been that Gronkowski will be ready for the game. But in order for him to play in Super Bowl II against the Philadelphia Eagles, Gronkowski will need to clear the concussion protocol by Friday.
Gronk led the Patriots in receptions (69), receiving yards (1,084), and touchdown receptions (8) during the 2017 regular season.
