As the Gronk turns is Indy's second-most popular soap opera, but things are starting to look up for Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who practiced on Friday without a limp and is listed as questionable on Friday's injury report.
Alex Marvez, the Patriots pool reporter, writes that Gronk worked out in "gray sneakers" and a “Yo Soy Fiesta” t-shirt. Bill Belichick was, naturally, a little less specific.
"He practiced yesterday. He didn’t do anything today," Belichick said. “We’ll see where he’s at on Sunday, but hopefully [he’ll play]. I saw no setbacks. He’s still making progress.”
This was New England's final tune-up of the week, as they'll skip any actual practice on Saturday.
“We’ll have meetings and we’ll do some reminders and things like that in our hotel but we’re not going to actually practice,” Belichick said.
Belichick also believes the team, without the extra day of practice, is fully prepared for Sunday's Super Bowl matchup.
"I think we’re ready to go," Belichick said. "We’ve worked hard this week Monday, Wednesday and Thursday in practice, and we had good practices back [in Foxborough, Mass.] last week. We went through some mental-review things out there [Friday]."
One of the more interesting things to come out of Friday's practice was Belichick's participation -- according to Marvez, he literally got down on the ground with his team and worked as an offensive lineman trying to draw coverage teams offsides.
