2012 Super Bowl, Rob Gronkowski Injury Update: Tight End To Play, Barring Setback

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski, who suffered a high-ankle sprain against the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship Game, will play in Super Bowl XLVI barring a setback in practice this week, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Many have presumed the second year tight end would play, and Schefter also noted that he will be a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Gronkowski suffered the injury while being tackled by Ravens' safety Bernard Pollard, and was forced to leave the game for medical examination. He later returned to the contest and finished the game on the field.

Upon the team's arrival to Indianapolis on Sunday afternoon, Gronkowksi was spotted in a black walking boot. By media day on Tuesday morning, he had shed the boot and walked without a noticeable limp.
