Rob Gronkowski hasn't been in a game since Week 11 when he broke his forearm blocking for an extra point against the Colts. He's been in practice for the last couple of weeks. Now we might finally see him back in a game.
Expect to see Rob Gronkowski suited up and playing Sunday in at least a limited role, according to a source. #PatriotsTalk

This would line up with the recovery time that was reported. It was said that Gronkowski could return in 4-6 weeks. This would be the sixth week since his injury.
For those worried about Gronkowski's health and whether or not this is a poor decision, know that Gronk will probably be limited. I think it will be important for him to at least see some game action after being off a football field for so long. I wouldn't want him to have to start getting used to playing again in a playoff game.
So, what do you think?
