Rob Gronkowski declares himself 'ready to roll' in Instagram post

Grant SmithJan 31, 2018

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network Insider, Brady had an appointment earlier this week to take the 12 stitches off his throwing hand. Had the Super Bowl been played this past Sunday instead of with the two-week break, Gronkowski likely would not have been available to the Patriots.

New England dispatched both the Tennessee Titans and Jaguars to reach the franchise's second consecutive Super Bowl, where the Patriots will battle the Philadelphia Eagles.

"Well it may have seen seemlessly, but it really wasn't", Brady said Sunday on ESPN's "NFL Countdown". The Patriots held Gronkowski out of practice for the entire bye week between the conference championship and the postseason. Gronkowski was concussed when Jaguars safety Barry Church landed a jarring hit to Gronkowski's helmet during the Patriots' 24-20 comeback win over the Jaguars.

Defensive end Deatrich Wise Jr. was also present despite being in the concussion protocol.

It does not appear Rob Gronkowski will be speaking to the media Monday night.

He had a team-high 69 receptions for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns in the regular season and typically is quarterback Tom Brady's go-to target and a matchup nightmare for defenses.

When Rice played in Super Bowl XXXVII for the Raiders he was 40 years and 105 days old while Brady will be 40 years and 185 days old. Harrison will become a free agent after this season.
