Audio: Rob Gronkowski provides update
By James Walker
New England Patriots Pro Bowl tight end Rob Gronkowski is having another interesting offseason. For the second year in a row, Gronkowski is recovering from a major injury and he's been in the spotlight for his adventures around the country.
On Wednesday, Gronkowski is making appearances at ESPN and told the "Mike & Mike in the Morning" radio show that his arm is feeling better.
“Right now, just rehabbing, getting the muscle stronger around it,” Gronkowski said. “You want to get everything activated, re-activated, because it shuts down for a little bit when it’s healing. So, just rehabbing, and when my trainers give me the ‘good to go’, hopefully in the next couple weeks, hopefully as soon as possible so I can get rolling again.”
Gronkowski recently made headlines by falling dangerously on his arm while wrestling with a friend during a party in Las Vegas. Gronkowski said he’s still getting accustom to all the attention he gets away from the football field.
“I was in the airport on the way here and everyone has their camera out videoing me walking through the airport,” Gronkowski said. “It’s weird at first, but you just can’t let it get to your head at all, affect you at all and keep doing what you’ve been doing since day one, which I have been.”
Gronkowski has been injured two years in a row in the playoffs. The Patriots need Gronkowski healthy for a full season to make a Super Bowl run.
