It appears as though Rob Gronkowski is going to be ready for Super Bowl Sunday.

On Saturday, the Patriots tight end would practice for the first time since suffering a concussion against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is present at the start of practice today, as is DE Deatrich Wise Jr.

But there’s a catch.

While he is present at the start of practice, Rob Gronkowski is still in the concussion protocol, per the club. This is another step in his progression through the protocol.

However, his presence means a whole heckuva lot for New England. And, it has huge implications for the Super Bowl.

Gronkowski’s presence Saturday represents an important step toward his potential return to the starting lineup for Super Bowl LII. The Patriots will look to capture their sixth Super Bowl victory – and third in the last four seasons – when they take on the Philadelphia Eagles.

If Gronk returns, you’ve got to like New England’s chances. But at the same time, the Eagles are riding high after their decimation of the Minnesota Vikings. It’s going to be a treat. Super Bowl LII takes place on Sunday, February 4 in Minnesota. Let’s get ready, football fans.
