Media day is over here from Lucas Oil Stadium. Look for more reports shortly.-- The Giants are now talking to the media and out the gates defensive lineman Justin Tuck was asked about dealing with Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski. "Well hopefully that ankle hurts a little bit."
-- The Patriots have wrapped up their portion of media day. We're an hour away from the New York Giants coming out.
-- Talked to rookie OL Nate Solder for a second. Asked him if the Patriots were sitting on a gadget play for him, seeing how he's tight end eligible all the time. He was decidedly vague.
-- Russ Ventrone was asked the funniest question so far: Can he name all the states in New England? Luckily he got 'em right.
-- Nickelodeon has a reporter at media day. Some fellow in a costume named Pick Boy. He asked Devin McCourty if he needs him to play for the Patriots. He's determined to steal the attention away from the players.
-- Sterling Moore has been mobbed by the media. Only Chad Ochocinco, who also doesn't have a booth, has more folks following him around.
-- Chad Ochocinco's network, OCNN is here. Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is reporting for the crew of 15.
-- Rob Gronkowski is no longer sporting a boot on his left foot. He had a good stride walking to the podium and stepping up to the platform. He said that the injury was "getting blown up" because of the Super Bowl. He claims there's no gamesmanship with removing his boot.
INDIANAPOLIS -- Media Day at Super Bowl XLVI is about to get underway at Lucas Oil Stadium with the Patriots speaking to the media first. Right now, members of the press have staked out Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski's booths. Despite Gronkowski's high ankle sprain and the interest surrounding his availability for Sunday's game, Brady is still outdrawing him 2 to 1. We'll have updates right here as the event unfolds.
