Rob Gronkowski Injury: Patriots' Tight End Will 'Be Ready To Go' For 2012 Super Bowl

It was an ugly site when New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski's ankle was rolled over by a Baltimore Ravens defender in the AFC Championship game Sunday. And when the 6-foot-6, 265-pound tight end left the field helped by New England team trainers a collective gasp could be heard among Pats' fans -- the opposite reaction probably for their future opponents' supporters.

However, as of Tuesday Gronkowski should be all set for the 2012 Super Bowl against the New York Giants, Feb. 5, at Lucus Oil Stadium.

"He’ll be ready to go," a source told the Boston Herald Monday.

This season, Gronkowski set a NFL record for touchdown receptions at his position, as he hauled in 90 receptions for 17 touchdowns and 1,327 yards.
