Gronk ready for Game 2 in return from knee injury
The Associated Press
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Rob Gronkowski looks to be in midseason form, at least when he's spiking the ball after a touchdown.
The rest of his game might take a while to get there.
The Patriots tight end pounded the ball to the ground after catching Tom Brady's 6-yard pass in the season opener after returning from knee surgery he had in January. He's hoping for another spike Sunday when New England visits the Minnesota Vikings.
He'd also like to catch more of the passes thrown his way. He caught four of the 11 passes Brady threw to him in a 33-20 loss on the road to the Miami Dolphins. Gronkowski says that shows he has plenty of room for improvement.
