Gronk is back at practice. It appears that Kyle Love is the only Patriot missing. Sweats and shells, inside Gillette Stadium.

Is this a sign that Gronkowski will play Sunday night against the 49ers? No way in hell.
However, it's definitely a positive sign that he's on track with his recovery. The initial time table that was reported had him coming back next week at the earliest. I wouldn't expect the Patriots to bring him back until the playoffs though.
Anyway this is awesome news. I can't wait until the offense is at full strength, if that ever happens.
