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.

Bill Belichick Doesn't Understand or Care About Soccer, You Guys

Aug 28 2014 9:34am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Let’s refresh ourselves on some basic Bill Belichick tenets:  Belichick does not enjoy public speaking. He does not relish fielding questions and most certainly doesn’t give a hot sandwich about the sport of soccer. The New England Patriots head coach can scarcely stomach speaking to the media about the sport he’s paid millions to coach, so it’s a small wonder he didn’t spontaneously combust on Wednesday when a reporter tossed out a pat-a-cake question about t ...

Dan Ciarrocchi examines quarterback busts to keep in mind during your fantasy drafts. As one of the richest positions in fantasy football, it's hard to find a quarterback who won't give you at least a fighting chance to win each week. Because of that, value is very important to take to heart. Below, I've listed busts for the upcoming season, but they aren't labeled as such because I necessarily think they will stink up the stat sheet. It's mostly ...

FNTSY Sports Network’s Pat Mayo & Corey Erdman discuss the most notable risers and fallers in Mayo’s updated TE Rankings.

Photo Credit: Getty Images By the time Week 2 rolls around, we’ll likely be looking at a major injury or two that either happened in the preseason or during Week 1’s games. This dirty dozen set of bench warmers are just a bad break away from becoming quality Fantasy producers. Last year, we saw plenty of backup players suddenly find themselves with a ton of playing time and lots of Fantasy points by season’s end, including Mike James, Keen ...
