Rob Gronkowski (concussion) misses Patriots' walkthrough on Friday

You know Gronk's gonna play

Another good sign for the Patriots.

Gronkowski was only one of several players the Patriots listed on Wednesday's injury report.

Defensive lineman Deatrich Wise (concussion) and Malcolm Brown (foot) also did not participate in Thursday's practice.

Gronkowski had suffered a concussion in the first half of the AFC Championship Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars that kept him out for the rest of the game.




Brady noted that Gronkowski's mere presence elevates the mood on the practice field. "It's just a great attribute of his; it always has been since he got here".

The Patriots depart for Minnesota on Monday. The injury didn't seem to be an issue for the five-time Super Bowl champion in the AFC championship game and he wasn't listed on Friday's injury report.

Those instances don't include any stints on injured reserve, including his season-ending ACL tear in December 2013. If there were a game, the Pro Bowler would have been ruled out. "We'll stick to football this week, too".

Church drew a 15-yard penalty on the play that knocked Gronkowski out of the game with a concussion. "Being a part of a couple of these losses, those are pretty tough to swallow, but I think you realize how much effort you have to put in to prepare".
