Rob Gronkowski returns to practice Thursday, no fantasy concerns for now

Timothy T. Ludwig-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Rob Gronkowski returned to practice Thursday on a limited basis. We break down the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hip) returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday, reports Christopher Price of WEEI. Gronk got an extra day of rest on Wednesday and is not expected to miss Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos. He had his first 100-yard day against the Buffalo Bills in Week 4.

Fantasy Impact: Bill Belichick loves to play around with his injury reports, so we don't know if Gronk is really healthy or dislocated his hip. Regardless, he should be ready to go, and we'll keep tracking practice reports through the weekend. Gronk had a somewhat slow start to the season, but he still has three TDs and remains an elite TE1. Gronk is a must-start every week.
