INDIANAPOLIS -- With the most famous left ankle in Super Bowl XLVI, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski emerged from the locker room with Aaron Hernandez for warmups, jogging up the left sideline and showing little effect from the high-ankle sprain he suffered two weeks ago.
He didn’t have a noticeable limp, but he also didn’t quite look 100 percent. One Boston-area reporter called him “jittery,” but it seems pretty clear Gronkowski will have some kind of role vs. the Giants.
So, we’ve established he’s "definitely" playing and that he looked decent enough in warmups.
The next (and perhaps final) questions in determining what kind of impact Gronkowski will have today will be this: what happens when he gets hit for the first tmie and what happens if the Giants go after his legs and ankles?
