Rob Gronkowski, tight end for the New England Patriots, finally game back and played in his first NFL game of the season this past Sunday, in a tough loss to the Jets. He was dealing with injuries and recovery from surgery for his back and forearm which caused him to miss so much time this season. However, Gronk is looking ahead, and couldn’t be feeling any better about it.
In an interview with ESPN, Gronk said,
“I felt good, everything checked out well. And all with the injury stuff and everything, I’m going to tell you guys now that that’s all going to be in the past, so I won’t be answering any more questions about that and the focus now is about the opponents coming up on the week.”
He played in a majority of the offensive snaps against the Jets on Sunday, and looks to remain active throughout the rest of the season. He is clearly focused more on football than anything else, and that’s the way it should be.
He’s relieved to not have to worry about being questionable for a game anymore as well.
“It’s a normal week, I’m just preparing, I just can concentrate on the Dolphins now all week.”
