Rob Gronkowski is ready to go.
"I'm ready to go," Gronkowski said, according to the Boston Herald. "I'll be playing."
"(I'm) definitely not (playing) every single snap," Gronkowski added, via ESPNBoston.com. "But just get out there, get my feet wet, whatever we game-plan this week, will be good."
The proclamation sticks with Gronkowski's statement in July that he plans to play all 16 games this season. Gronkowski spent the offseason rehabbing following reconstructive surgery on his right knee.
Gronkowski had not experienced any setbacks during training camp, making Monday's announcement somewhat expected. Still, it's fantastic news for a Patriots team that leans hard on the tight end's dynamic skill-set.
