"No, definitely no doubts," he said. "I just know that all the hard work you put in is what you're going to get out of it. I love to put in the work. [I] love the challenge sometimes. It is what it was and now I'm good to go."
The big tight end was placed on injured reserve after injuring his back against the Jets in a late-November match up. Even with his injury history, Gronk remains a force. He was awarded with a restructured contract this offseason that could make him the highest-paid tight end in the NFL this year if he meets certain criteria.
Even with Dwayne Allen on the roster, it's important for the Patriots to keep Gronkowski healthy, as the Patriots are at their best when running a two tight-end offense.
