Gronkowski put in a limited practice Wednesday after he did not do on-field work Monday and Tuesday, which were essentially walkthrough sessions, for precautionary reasons.
"What I've been told all along here is they want to be cautious with him," NFL Network's Michael Girardi reported Thursday on Good Morning Football. "Obviously, he's a very important player. You're looking at a stretch now after Indianapolis in which they have 10 days off before they have to get ready for Kansas City."
The presence of Edelman and Gordon should benefit Gronkowski, who has seen a lot of double teams through the first four games of the season.
