Report: 50-50 chance Rob Gronkowski will play week one

According to ProFootballTalk.com, there’s a 50-50 chance Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will be ready for week one.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Gronkowski’s anticipated Week One availability sits at 50-50, with perhaps a shade above the even-money proposition.  It’s not a surprise; given the many surgeries and complications Gronkowski has endured in the past two years, there’s no reason to be reckless with his health.
