The first game designations for Super Bowl XLVI have been released, and Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is questionable for the big game. He joins 13 other Patriots in the “questionable” category for the Super Bowl, though Gronk is the only one yet to practice with the team this week. Much has been made about the nature of Gronk’s ankle injury, which he suffered at the hands of Bernard Pollard in the AFC Championship game, but the cat may have been let out of the bag by Gronk’s father, Gordy Gronkowski.
This from WIVB.com:
Gordy says Rob suffered a high ankle sprain in the AFC Championship game last Sunday. But he says with two weeks to go until the Super Bowl, he expects his son will be fine for the game.
The good news is that Gordy expects Rob to be fine for the Super Bowl, but high ankle sprains are never good. Here’s the complete injury report:
