Gronkowski returns to Pats practice

FOXBORO -- Rob Gronkowski returned to practice on Friday as the Patriots worked out in sweats and shells inside Gillette Stadium on the main field. 

Gronkowski broke his left forearm blocking on the final extra point in New England's 59-28 win over the Colts on Nov. 18. He had surgery the next day and has missed the last three games. Gronkowski was wearing blue long sleeves with no apparent extra padding on the left arm. He was spotted squeezing his left hand during sprints at the start of practice in an apparent test of strength in the arm. 

The Boston Globe reported earlier this week that Gronkowski was hopeful to return to practice this week and be available to play Sunday night when the Patriots host the 49ers at Gillette Stadium. 

Gronkowski had missed the first two practices this week before taking the field with the team for the first time since breaking his forearm. The Patriots had perfect attendance at practice on...

Lombardi: 49ers 'toughest challenge' for Pats
By: Mike Neff

NFL Network analyst Mike Lombardi joined Dennis & Callahan on Friday morning to preview Sunday's Patriots-49ers game and discuss news from around the league.

Although the Patriots blew out the Texans on Monday, Lombardi said the 49ers game will be much more difficult.

“I think San Francisco is really good,” Lombardi said. “I think this will be the toughest challenge the Patriots face all season. This is a championship-level defense. There are not a lot of easy plays. … This is one of the best teams in the National Football League keeping you off the field. They have great speed, they can run, so there are not a lot of easy plays and there are not a lot of easy yards. You are going to have to make some chunk yards up the field on them, you’re going to have to make explosive plays on them, which is hard to do against them. … You’re going to have to put your foot in the ground and get the...

Mashup: ESPN host questions RGIII on race

ESPN host Rob Parker is the talk of the Internet following his analysis of Washington rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III as it pertains to the black community.

RGIII responded to a reporter's question on Wednesday by saying:

“I am [aware] of how race is relevant to [some fans]. I don’t ignore it,. I try not to be defined by it, but I understand different perspectives and how people view different things. So I understand they’re excited their quarterback is an African-American. I play with a lot of pride, a lot of character, a lot of heart. So I understand that, and I appreciate them for being fans.”

Speaking on ESPN's "First Take," Parker -- who also is African-American -- said Thursday:

"This is an interesting topic. For me, personally, just me, this throws up a red flag, what I keep hearing. And I don’t know who’s asking the questions, but we’ve heard a couple of...

Gronkowski limited, 'questionable' for Sunday

FOXBORO -- Rob Gronkowski was officially listed as "limited" in his return to Patriots practice on Friday and the team lists him as questionable for a Sunday night return to action against the 49ers at Gillette Stadium. 

Gronkowski was seen flexing his left hand as he was running sprints at the start of practice as the team worked out in sweats and shells. Gronkowski wasn't wearing any apparent protection on the left forearm that was surgically repaired after it was broken on Nov. 18 against the Colts. Gronkowski was not in the locker room to talk to reporters during media availability after practice. 

Starting left tackle Nate Solder was also added to the injury report on Friday and was limited in practice with an abdomen injury. He is among 19 players listed as questionable for Sunday night. 

Also among the large group listed as questionable were Aqib Talib (hip) and Alfonzo Dennard (hamstring) who returned on...

Niners' Smith: 'We can stop' Patriots

Niners edge rusher Aldon Smith doesn't sound intimidated by the Patriots offense, saying Thursday that San Francisco has "played good offenses before" and adding, "We can stop them."

Smith, who leads the league with 19.5 sacks coming into Sunday night's game at Gillette Stadium, told Bay Area reporters that because of San Francisco's wins over the Packers and the Lions, he has confidence when it comes to the idea of stopping the New England defense.

"Yeah. We’ve played good offenses before," Smith said. "This isn’t the first offense we’ve played that has talent. Tape shows what happened. We’ll just put it back on tape again."
