NFL rumors: Rob Gronkowski expected to begin running program soon

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski suffered a torn ACL and MCL in early December, and he has been working hard to rehab his surgically repaired knee since undergoing the knife.

Gronkowski remains on track for his scheduled return and has yet to suffer any setbacks, which is great news as he gets ready to begin a running program “soon.”

From Albert Breer of the NFL Network:

While Gronkowski is back on his feet and ready to begin his running program, Gronkowski is still unlikely to be healthy enough to be a full go in time for training camp.

There is a chance that Gronkowski will once again begin his season on the physically-unable to perform list, which would be great news for fantasy football owners looking to get a bargain at the position.
