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.

Fantasy Football 2014: Stars Who Will Bounce Back from Disappointing Week 1

Sep 11 2014 6:55pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

A slow Week 1 from one of your fantasy football players isn't the end of the world. Some stars will make up for the opening week's letdown with a much better outing the second time around. This isn't to say their Week 1 flops were flukes. There's legitimate concern for all three aging stars discussed below, but the iron is hot for a strong Sunday showing. Better matchups put them all in a better situa ...

Shane Vereen, Stevan Ridley's Instant Fantasy Reaction After Week 1

Sep 7 2014 12:44pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Assessing Bill Belichick's running back usage is typically not the best idea. The New England Patriots head coach has become famous for juggling his runners between possessions—at times benching players who were 20-carry guys a week prior.   But in the ever-feeble attempt at figuring out the hierarchy, it seems Shane Vereen will be getting the goal-line snaps in Week 1. Vereen scored New England's first touchdown of 2014 on a two ...

Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 1: Patriots vs. Dolphins

Sep 7 2014 7:45am CDT | Source: SBNation

The Dolphins look to break up the Patriots' hold on the AFC East to start the season in Sunday's game. The New England Patriots have won the AFC East for five straight years and 10 of the last 11. The only blip in that time was when the 2008 Miami Dolphins sneaked in with an 11-5 season. Sunday, the Dolphins look to again interrupt the Patriots' dominance, as the teams open their season with a 1 p.m. ET game in Miami. There are, as usual, plenty of fantasy options in ...

NFL Predictions Week 1: Underrated Running Backs Who Will Carry Their Team

Sep 5 2014 5:23pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The NFL is becoming less of a feature-back league and more of a pass-first, hurry-up offense that heavily favors quarterbacks and wide receivers. But we've already seen Marshawn Lynch carry the Seattle Seahawk's offense on Thursday night, piling up 110 yards and two touchdowns. He's shown us early in the young 2014 season that he's still one of the league's elite interior rushers. At 28 years old, the talk of Lynch's demise has been fairly ...

Fantasy Football Week 1: Complete Preview and Analysis

Thankfully, Rob Gronkowski didn't leave it up to the old fox Bill Belichick. Gronk told us Monday, "I'm ready to go. I'll be playing," as Shalise Manza Young of The Boston Globe reported. We expected Belichick and the traditionally tip-lipped New England Patriots to be coy about Gronk's status, if only to play a game of cat and mouse with the opponent's game plan. Gronk answered one of the biggest questions ...
