Rob Gronkowski injury: Patriots TE limited in Wednesday practice

Jared Wickerham

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was a limited participant in Patriots practice on Wednesday.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was limited in practice on Wednesday. Gronkowksi returned to practice on Friday, Dec. 14 for the first time since breaking his forearm on Nov. 18, but did not play in the Patriots Week 15 loss to the 49ers. His status for the Patriots game against the Jaguars on Sunday is undetermined.

The initial prognosis was that Gronkowski would be out for four to six weeks; had he returned for the 49ers game, that would have been four weeks after breaking his arm. Last week it was reported that the Patriots were planning to bring him back in Week 17 as a tuneup for the playoffs, but that has not been confirmed.

In 10 games this season, Gronkowski has 53 receptions for 748 yards and 10 touchdowns. His 10 touchdowns lead all tight ends in the league. The Patriots have already secured the AFC East title, but are still playing for playoff seeding.
