FOXBOROUGH -- After fielding questions about where he'll spend Thanksgiving (with teammates), what his favorite Thanksgiving foods are ("turkey, stuffing, gravy, corn, the whole platter at once, all at the same time"), and his favorite pie ("pumpkin, with vanilla ice cream"), Rob Gronkowski finally drew the line when asked about memories from his final high school game, since many Massachusetts football teams end their seasons on the holiday.

"We havenít talked about the Texans at all yet," Gronkowski said, dodging the question. "Thatís all Iím really focused on this week."

Gronkowski appears to be fully integrated after missing the first six games of the season following a series of offseason surgeries on his forearm and back. He was on the field for all 87 snaps against the Broncos in Sunday night's comeback win, the first time he has had 100 percent participation in the five games he's played. He caught seven passes for 90 yards, and scored a touchdown for the third straight game.

"The more youíre playing, the more weeks youíre going, the more youíre into it, and the more everything is flowing together," Gronkowski said. "Just trying to improve every week: on the field, off the field, in the weight room, in the meeting room."
