Rob Gronkowski remains on the right track in his recovery from reconstructive knee surgery.
NFL Media's Albert Breer reported Friday on NFL Network's "NFL Total Access" that the New England Patriots tight end visited with famed orthopedist Dr. James Andrews this week and is "right where he should be." Gronkowski will start jogging soon.
This is good news for the Patriots, who were dealt a crushing blow last season when Gronkowski tore his ACL and MCL on a low hit during a Week 14 win over the Cleveland Browns. The knee injury came on the heels of a trying period for the tight end, who had already returned from back surgery and multiple procedures on his troublesome left forearm.
The latest update is positive, but the road to complete recovery remains long. Don't be surprised if Gronkowski starts next season the same way he started the last -- on the Patriots' physically unable to perform list.
