Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski said Wednesday he is still waiting to be cleared by the team's medical staff before he can return from a broken left forearm that has kept him out of the past five games.
"When the doctors clear me, when the training staff clears me, when I'm medically ready to play and they let me play, I'm sure that's when I'll be out there," Gronkowski said.
"Basically, the doctors know what they're talking about. They'll know when it's safe and sound and ready to go," he said. "I'm going to trust in them, and when they say so, I'm anxious to get out there, so obviously I want to go."
We don't expect Gronkowski to play this week.
