Rob Gronkowski (forearm) practicing on Wednesday

ESPN Boston - [Full Article]

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (forearm/hip) was on the field for the start of Wednesday's practice at Gillette Stadium, the team's first of the week before Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Gronkowski returned to practice last Friday after missing almost four weeks with a broken forearm. He wasn't active for Sunday's game, but his presence at Wednesday's practice is a positive sign for his health.

Fantasy Impact: 

This is obviously a good sign for his availability for Week 16, though the Patriots could elect to give him another week to heal since they have a winnable game against the Jaguars.
