According to Mike Reiss on Twitter, Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski had this to say on his Week 1 playing time: “Definitely not [playing] every single snap. But just get out there, get my feet wet, whatever we game-plan this week, will be good.”
SMITTY: If he is playing, he is worth starting, as Gronk could catch just two passes, but both could be touchdowns. Hopefully he gets healthier each week. It will be interesting to see how much action Tim Wright gets in Week 1. Looking for Week 1 Power Rankings?
