Rob Gronkowski questionable, moves without limp - [Full Article]

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski participated in Friday's hour-long walk-through to cap the Patriots' week of indoor practices leading up to Super Bowl XLVI.

Gronkowski took the field for the second straight day after practicing on a limited basis Thursday for the first time since spraining his left ankle Jan. 22 in the AFC Championship Game. He is listed as questionable on New England's injury report for Sunday's matchup against the New York Giants. Gronkowski moved without a limp when the Patriots executed their offensive plays.

The Patriots listed 10 other players as questionable, including safety Patrick Chung (knee), left guard Logan Mankins (knee), linebacker Brandon Spikes (knee) and wide receiver Wes Welker (knee). All 11 players were listed as taking part in a limited portion of Friday's session, in which players never moved faster than a trot while executing plays.

Fantasy Impact: 

Rob Gronkowski is fully expected to suit up Sunday, although he will likely be at less than 100%. Wes Welker, Deion Branch and Stevan Ridley are all expected to be available.
