In response to ATJ's comment:
. . . . on the reported locker room explosion between Dr. Gill and Petraglia abut this blog:
Know anyone who was there?
1. This is old news.
2. Dr. Gill has worked at Mass Gen, one of the world's most prestigious hospitals, for many years.
3. RKrap does not know any more than we know.
Edelman was on the radio recently saying all of this overblown by the media. That's about as close as a primary source as I've heard on the topic.
There is no way Gronk should be practicing if there was some kind of fear or playing the game.
Please get this through your thick skull. It's been common knowledge for weeks.
Being cleared to practice (limited) is not the same as being cleared to play.
Drew Rosenhaus, the agent for New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, told the Joe Rose Show on 560 WQAM in Miami that his client has not yet been cleared to play by Dr. James Andrews, the renowned orthopedic surgeon who is independently consulting with Gronkowski as he recovers from back and forearm surgeries.
"Up to this point, he hasn't been cleared to play in a game," Rosenhaus said Thursday. "He has not been cleared by Dr. Andrews, who is the supervising doctor."
Although Gronkowski has yet to play in a game, he has taken part in every Patriots practice during the regular season, each time on a limited basis.
