ESPN.com reported that the star tight end spent part of Thursday at a Boston hospital receiving an injection in his injured right knee, but NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Gronk did not receive any injections, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. He's been undergoing treatment and is expected to be suit up Saturday.
Gronkowski practiced on Monday, sat out Tuesday, was a limited participant on Wednesday and was sidelined again Thursday. Patriots coach Bill Belichick was predictably vague when asked about Gronkowski's status ahead of Saturday's tilt.
"We'll list the players after practice like we do every day," Belichick said.
