Neither Gronkowski nor receiver Chad Ochocinco were on the inactive list, meaning they will be active for the game.
Gronkowski's left ankle looked perfectly fine when he jogged onto the field wearing a protective sock before the start of pregame warm-ups.
Gronkowski and fellow tight end Aaron Hernandez jogged about 50 yards down the numbers then turned to their right and ran another 15-20 before doubling back to start positional drills. There was no noticeable limp when Gronkowski ran.
Running back Kevin Faulk, who has played in four previous Super Bowls with the team, is listed as inactive.
