FOXBOROUGH — The agent for tight end Rob Gronkowski said Thursday he doesn’t understand why his client’s injury status has gotten so much attention, before teasing that Gronkowski will “be back soon, maybe even this weekend.”
While appearing on a Miami radio show, Drew Rosenhaus claimed Gronkowski, who has participated in every practice since Sept. 2 but has yet to appear in a game, is no different than any other player recovering from an injury.
“I don’t understand why this story has gotten so much traction,” Rosenhaus said. “There are dozens of players around the NFL who aren’t playing because they are injured and coming back from surgery. Up to this point he hasn’t been cleared to play in a game. He has not been cleared by Dr. [James] Andrews, who is the supervising doctor.” Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
