    I'm thinking week 2 the earliest, but week three should be all systems go.

    I think they'll play it safe with him. I'd say 50% chance at week 3, with the other 25% week 2 and 25% week 4 roughly, maybe slightly leaning more heavily in week 4 than 2.

     I'm thinking a little playing time in week two.

    Maybe they ease him in on extra point attempts.   Er, scratch that.

    I hope they keep him out until Atlanta.

    If he is a full participant in practice I could see week 1 or 2.  If he is just easing back into it, the timetable could be much longer.

     I was thinking a week or two, but does the cut of Develin signify anything?  Who knows, because I'm sure the roster will be different by Sunday.

    Please no earlier than week 3.  Let him heal.  A great Gronk for 12-14 weeks is better than a good Gronk for 6 weeks, then gets reinjured and affects him for future seasons.  We fouled this up last season because we didn't have a deep WR corps.  Lets do this smart now.

    Re: Will Gronkowski Play the Bills?

    Got to agree with most here. I think the earliest we see him is week 3 or 4. He is really just getting back to practice and has to get into football shape. I think the injury is healed, now it's just getting his body and mind back into game reps. 

    Someone also said eased in. Perhaps bb uses him on a few series, kind of like gronk's preseason in gams 1 or 2. Significant reps I think will be held off I think til game 3-4. Just a guess.

    I agree with the sentiment of resting as long as possible, but BB is certainly not hesitant about playing a guy once he is cleared. If Gronk is practicing, he is close......

    In response to zbellino's comment:

    Just wondering what the forum thinks: does Gronk get in there against the Bills? Or does he need another week or so of practice/recuperation?

     

     


    No way. First game back will be Atlanta.

    I think we signed Mulligan to fill the blocking TE void for the first 2 weeks.  I'm guessing Gronk returns week 3.

    The Bills right now are riddled with injuries of their key offensive players, Gronk may not be needed for this game.  Let him ease back into playing.

    I say yes, but he only gets 10 snaps.  They're watching his reps.

    I expect him to play game 1.  The dude is 24 and he already knows the playbook, how to run and catch.  Plus I'm sure he's been working his azz off, all camp, behind closed doors.

    No he won't play against the Bills at least I hope he doesn't because the last thing the Pats need is for him to get hurt because they rushed him.

    Week 2 at the earliest, limited role.  Don't really see him playing against the Bills.

    Not in week 1. Eased slowly into the mix in week 2 and 3, then a starter from week 4.

    Imo, won't see a play until week 3.  Off the PUP list is good news, but I doubt he starts before week 4.

    Re: Will Gronkowski Play the Bills?

    I think he will get a little plauing time in week 2 to get him up to game speed, and then he will play close to a full load week 3. If Sudfeld comes out week 1 and impresses then they may delay it a little more.

    Re: Will Gronkowski Play the Bills?

    All reports is that he's in great physical shape but he still needs to get into football shape which normally takes several weeks. It's very similar to other players coming off the PUP after 6 weeks. If healthy they normally start playing after a several weeks or they eventually end up on the IR. But this is why BB is saying it's day to day. So I agree it most likely will be week 3 but it would not surprise me if we saw him for the Jets game next Thursday.
