Rob Gronkowski Injury: Patriots TE Loses The Boot At Media Day

There won't be very much real news broken at media day for the 2012 Super Bowl but we do have one nugget of information to pass along: Rob Gronkowski has the boot off of his foot. The Patriots tight end has a high ankle sprain and, while he's expected to play, his ankle has been the big topic of conversation during Super Bowl week.

ESPN's Mike Reiss has the photo evidence of Gronkowski's boot-less foot.

Gronkowski's ankle is by far the biggest injury news for either team. He hasn't practice since the week leading into the AFC Championship game and he may not practice at all leading up to the Super Bowl. The Patriots will have practice Wednesday through Friday.

Despite the fact we've spent a lot of time talking about Gronkowski's injury, it's important to remember that almost everyone expects him to play. He may not be 100 percent, but he should be on the field.
