Report: Gronk likely to play tonight against Texans

It was reported all week that All-World tight end Rob Gronkowski would be a "game time" decision for tonight's game against the Houston Texans. If today's early reports are any indication, things are looking good for his return to the line up. Don't take it from me, take it from Schefter.

The final decision on Gronk's status will likely be determined by how Gronk's bruised/sprained knee feels after warming up, but it sounds like he'll go barring (knocks furiously on wood) some kind of unexpected setback. Given Gronk and the team's cautious tenor regarding his status since he suffered the injury two weeks ago, it sounds like he should have minimal limitations.
