WOBURN, Mass. — After missing minicamp last week, it doesn’t seem like a big concern for Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.
Speaking at his football clinic run through Pro Camps Saturday morning, Gronkowski confirmed he was present at Gillette Stadium this past week, but “doing other things.”
“I’m doing other things. I’m participating fully with what the coaches have me doing. We’re all good. We’re all on the same page,” Gronkowski said. “Coming out here it’s just as fun. Just working hard during the week and then coming out here applying the skills we’re learning in football and bringing them out in the kids.”
The tight end was asked again about not being on the field, but he reiterated he was just “doing other things.”
“I mean, I was present, but I was doing other things as coach would say. It’s all good. I’m good,” he said.
Gronkowski is no stranger to having injuries as he’s suffered severe back, knee and arm injuries over the years. When asked about the trust between the team doctors and himself, he said everyone is on the same page.
“If I feel like it’s the best interest for myself, at the same time, if I’m on the same page with whatever they want, we’re all on the same wave length,” Gronkowski said. “Everything’s going smooth. Everything is going good.”
So, after not being on the field for OTAs and minicamp, will he be ready for training camp?
“Oh, yeah,” Gronkowski said with a smile.
