NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported on Thursday that New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski could be back to play in Week 3 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on September 22.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski could be back as early as Week 3 of the 2013 NFL season. 

This was what NFL.com's Ian Rapoport divulged on "NFL Total Access Kickoff" pregame show. He said the Patriots "hope" Gronkowski will suit up in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, per his colleague, Chris Wesseling. 

Raporport also added Gronkowski "will be playing in Week 4" when the Patriots travel south to face the Atlanta Falcons

Brett Loguirato of Sports Illustrated wrote in a September 12 update that the tight end's condition "has continued to improve in the aftermath of offseason surgeries on his left forearm and lower back." 

In addition, Gronkowski also practiced for the first time in full pads last week, per Loguirato.  

Gronkowski told MassLive.com's Nick Underhill last week that taking the field for the Patriots once again is not just about the full recovery of his forearm and lower back. His whole body has to be in sync. 

"You take off (time) like that, you have to get conditioned again. You got to get stronger throughout your whole body -- your legs, your upper body, your arms -- so that's all at play, too. You can't just jump back out there because your arm is ready. You got to get your whole body there.

He also said he wouldn't be shocked at all if he suits up sooner than later. 

"Not at all (surprised). It just takes work and dedication. Listening to your trainers and your coaches. That's all I can ask out of myself. That's all the trainers can ask out of me, all the coaches, all the trainers. Just give what I have that day and progress every day." 

Gronkowski hauled in 55 passes for 790 yards in 11 games for the Patriots in 2012.

Week 6 NFL Picks: Latest Betting Odds, Vegas Spreads and Projections

Oct 7 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The NFL has turned into the best reality show on television. It's no longer about domination by any individual team but surviving and advancing to the next week. If there's a theme for the top games of Week 6, it's proving that what we've seen thus far is for real.  Great teams are able to find ways to win when they don't play their best. Look at the way Seattle played in Washington on Monday night. Russell Wilson was brilliant, but no one else would say it was the g ...

Week 5 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em: Highlighting Matchups to Exploit and Avoid

Oct 4 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Some things go great together, like peanut butter and jelly. Other things aren't such a great match, like peanut butter and sardines. Ew. Fantasy football is no different. Some matchups are bound to increase the fantasy stock of entire teams. Other matchups make it wise to ignore every player from that team on our fantasy roster. Let's take a look at a few examples of each this week.   Start 'Em: Pittsburgh Steelers Obviously, ...

Oct 2 2014 12:22pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

THE FLEXPERT v14.5 – Week 5 FLEX Rankings There’s a singular, pervasive theme in THE FLEXPERT every season, stretching Week 1 through 16 – Mayo don’t do Week 17, and neither should you. Shockingly, this column isn’t exclusively reserved for non-sequiturs and deranged, esoteric allusions. In 2013, my thesis was manipulating league rules and settings to use for personal gain.

Chiefs surprise Patriots with Monday night rout

Sep 29 2014 10:34pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It made sense that Andy Reid spoke in baseball metaphors after Kansas City whipped the New England Patriots on Monday night, with the Royals poised to end a long playoff drought just across the parking lot from Arrowhead Stadium. He may have stretched things a bit when it came to Jamaal Charles, though. "It’s a heck of a thing to bring 25 off the bench as a relief pitcher," Reid said. "That’s a pretty good player. To add him back to the mix is something." ...

The Week 4 schedule gets underway Thursday night with an NFC East clash between the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins. Given the fact that it's usually one of the most hotly contested division races and both teams are 1-2, it's a key game. Thursday's encounter is also one of the toughest over-under picks due to the question marks for both sides. The Giants looked out of sync for much of the first two weeks before ...
