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.

Capitalizing on breakout stars is the ultimate way to ensure that you'll win your upcoming fantasy football league. Anything can happen in fantasy football.

Johnny Football: I’ve made ‘rookie mistakes’

Jul 25 2014 6:43pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

BEREA, Ohio — Like reading a blitz, Johnny Manziel knew the questions about his off-field wildness were coming. So the Browns quarterback struck first. "At the end of the day," Manziel said, "I’ve made some rookie mistakes." On the eve of Cleveland’s first training camp practice, Manziel offered some regret about his well-chronicled weekend partying over the past two months. But as he prepares to battle Brian Hoyer for a starting job, Manziel said he’s in good standing wi ...

Jul 24 2014 7:46am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The release of Madden NFL 15 on August 26, is one of the most anticipated dates in the video game world, but the reveal of top player ratings has led to intense debate over which stars were the most overrated thus far. For players like Seattle’s Russell Wilson and Chicago’s Matt Forte, there is no doubt that a stellar previous season inflated their ratings beyond where they actually should be.

For Green Bay Packers to Take Next Step, Young Tight Ends Must Improve

Jul 16 2014 1:31pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Green Bay Packers are very close to Super Bowl contention. But in order for them to truly become a favorite, they need either the gifted-but-raw Brandon Bostick or rookie Richard Rodgers to become a game-changer at tight end. The reasoning is simple: Three of the four best NFL quarterbacks have something in common—a young, supremely gifted tight end who is stretching the rigid definition of the position to its utmost limits. Peyton Mann ...
