Will Gronk Be Cleared to Play in the Super Bowl?

Beating Patriots Brady 2 years ago gives Eagles confidence

He was knocked out of the Patriots' 24-20 AFC Championship Game victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday after he took a big hit from safety Barry Church late in the second quarter and was wobbly as he got to his feet. Tom Brady threw for 236 yards and two touchdowns in that contest and wide receiver Deion Branch was named Super Bowl MVP after compiling 133 yards on 11 receptions.

The Patriots returned from a day off and conducted a typical Monday schedule on a Wednesday to prepare for the remainder of the week.

While he has yet to be available for comment since his injury, teammate Matthew Slater described Gronkowski as being in "pretty good spirits" when they talked. The drive stalled when Brady was sacked by Dante Fowler Jr., and New England settled for Stephen Gostkowski's 31-yard field goal. No further update has been given by the Patriots since Gronkowski was ruled out for the game in the third quarter on Sunday. They also had Martellus Bennett to pick up the slack. NBC10 in Philadelphia added it got the same Philly support from Alexa in New York City, Maryland, Atlanta and, yes, even in MA (aka Patriots territory). "They play for that team and I play for my team". Two San Francisco radio stations banned pop artist Lorde's "Royals" song during the 2014 World Series played against the Kansas City Royals. They've stepped it up in the playoffs, giving up just 17 points to the Falcons and Vikings.

The next task, of course, is to beat New England in the Super Bowl.

Allen has 10 receptions for 86 yards and a touchdown this season. Think of DeSean Jackson taunting the Giants as he ran perpendicular to the end zone on the one-yard line as time expired while returning Matt Dodge's punt. I kind of try to analyze the situation of where we are as a team, do a little bit of reflection but make sure that it's not just an emotional response to keep everybody in perspective.

"Uh, so if we're sitting here and I had choose would I want a concussion right now or my knee blown out, I'm going to say a concussion", Gronk said during an interview with CBS in April 2015. "It certainly doesn't always play out the way that you wanted it to or that you had hoped to or designed it to, but that happens in every game".

This year, the four finalists are some of the best defensive-minded teams in football.

Belichick was asked by a reporter for an update on Gronkowski, if the tight end had finished his time in the concussion protocol and if the coach expects him to play versus the Eagles.

"I got like 46 texts right after the game and everybody is like 'hey by the way if I can get to the game, '" tackle Nate Solder told WBZ-TV.
