Reports hopeful on Rob Gronkowski return

The question that greeted the Patriots at training camp and has hung around during the first five weeks of the NFL season like a neighborhood nuisance — When will Gronk come back? — appears ready to be answered.

According to multiple reports, tight end Rob Gronkowski should be cleared to play in Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints at Gillette Stadium. He has been working his way back onto the field after having multiple surgical procedures during the offseason: one on his back, and four on his left forearm, which was broken twice last season.
