According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter via Rotoworld.com, the “buzz is positive” regarding Rob Gronkowski’s recovery from offseason back surgery. There even seems to be a chance Gronk may avoid the PUP list at the start of the season.
“Buzz seems to be building the positive way,” said Schefter. “I haven’t heard too many discouraging things. … So far the buzz is positive.” Schefter went so far as to suggest Gronkowski is likely to avoid reserve/PUP to start the season, although that won’t be confirmed until late in the month and/or early September. Either way, less news is good news on Gronkowski’s recovery, and there haven’t been any negative reports.
