New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has not suffered any setbacks in his recovery from a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee, and he hopes to play in Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins, CBS Boston reports.
Gronkowski, who suffered the season-ending injury in a Dec. 8 game against the Cleveland Browns, has not yet resumed practicing with his teammates. He ran and did conditioning work during organized team activities, but was limited to individual workouts.
While the hope is that Gronkowski will be back at full strength for the start of the season, it is unclear whether he will be ready to practice with his teammates at the beginning of training camp in late July.
Gronkowski played in just seven games in 2013, as he missed the first six weeks of the season while recovering from surgeries on his back and arm.
