Gronkowski has been dealing with "significant" hip pain and discomfort over the past two weeks, but he was never in real danger of missing the Week 5 showdown against Denver. Gronk was seen earlier in the morning walking without a limp, so he seems ready to go. The Patriots may give him a series or two off as they did last week against the Bills, but Gronk has a phenomenal mathcup with the seventh-worst defense against opposing tight ends. Aaron Hernandez (ankle) is unlikely to play. Oct 7 - 11:02 AM
Don't over think it. Apparently he's no worse today than he was last week and he had a great week last week.
