As expected, Rob Gronkowski is back at practice on Sunday.
Gronk is coming off a season-ending MCL-ACL tear. He's proclaimed himself ready-to-go for the beginning of the season, but the compilation of back, knee and collarbone issues he's had over the last few seasons make him a risky proposition in fantasy drafts, but a high-upside one to be sure. ANALYST:
Cecil Shorts might be ready to play against Jacksonville in Week 6.
Both Shorts and Nate Washington missed Thursday's game, making way for Jaelen Strong and Keith Mumphery. While strong caught two TDs, Mumphery was a non-factor. Strong earned himself more playing time in the coming weeks, possibly coming at Shorts' expense, though it could come at Washington's as coach Bill O'Brien said that Shorts had a better chance of playing against Jacksonville than Washington does.
