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.

Vontae Davis' Elite Play Fuels Hopes Colts Defense Can Beat Better Competition

Nov 4 2014 12:37am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

A week after Pittsburgh's thrashing of the Colts defense, Indianapolis doesn't really seem so alone in that regard. The insertion of Martavis Bryant appears to have given Pittsburgh enough weapons to handle any team, as the Steelers showed by torching Baltimore on Sunday night.  Meanwhile, in New York, it was just another day at the office for the Indianapolis defense, which harassed and harried quarterback Eli Manning into a 40-10 deficit that was cut to a 40-24 victory after ...

Dismal game exposes out-coached, out-played Denver Broncos

Nov 3 2014 8:00am CST | Source: milehighreport

What was supposed to be a showdown turned out to be a meltdown as the Denver Broncos left Foxboro with their tails between their legs again. But take heart, Broncos Country, this Broncos team was not the one we planned for and built this year. The real Broncos will be back next week. Well, THAT did not go as expected. But it did go as planned. Not that the Broncos planned to lose; they just ob ...

Should You Have Avoided Injury Prone Players In Fantasy Football?

Nov 1 2014 4:24pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

Be leary of injury-prone players — that’s common wisdom. But this year has been different. If anything, it seems like the moral of this year is that you should take a risk on a injury-prone tight end or running back, and they’ll end up the best player at their position. So what’s really going on here? Should we be kicking ourselves for skipping over the injury prone players? Or, is there more to it? Let’s review: The guys you grabbed with finger ...
