Rob Gronkowski says he is ready for Patriots game Sunday

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – 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 New England Patriots star tight end pounded the ball to the ground after catching Tom Brady’s 6-yard pass in the season opener following knee surgery in January. “Just a little warmup, that’s all,” he said of his windup and slam midway through the second quarter last Sunday. “Hopefully, some (more) come versus the Minnesota Vikings.” The Patriots visit the Vikings on Sunday, hoping to do better on the road than they did a week earlier in a 33-20 loss to the Miami Dolphins. The knee injury sidelined Gronkowski for the last five games last season, including two in the playoffs. He sat out all four preseason games while gradually increasing his workload in training camp.
