Gronkowski will not practice Thursday

By Mike Rodak

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will not practice on Thursday, head coach Bill Belichick announced at his Thursday morning news conference.

Gronkowski suffered a left ankle injury in Sunday's AFC Championship win over the Ravens, but returned to the game. Belichick said they will take Gronkowski's injury situation "day-to-day."

Despite clear weather conditions in the area, the team will practice inside their field house on Thursday and Friday of this week.
