6:19 pm
risk coming back. that yes, you hope he can be back for the ninth but there is the medical side and then with the knee and with the forearm, there is forces outside of medicine with this player in particular that they will be very conservative and they don't care if it is the super bowl or anything else. they will want to be slow. >> how much will they miss him? since he joined he has been patriots' touchdowns. the patriots know this feeling all too well. >> here is rob gronkowski appears to be going to the lock remember cool. this is another tough situation for the patriots. they may have the hardest match- up in the nfl and rob gronkowski, but keeping him on the field is an issue after suffering a hamstring injury in the preseason. it took him awhile. >> you have to be careful. you have to progress.

[ laughter ] >> in hindsight that was wise. he has missed 18 games in 7 years because of injury and that number is going to increase. i'll say this is going to make nine surgeries since 2009. the body can only take so much. >> now eyes on bennett. >> that is even a touch and go situation. he didn't practice yesterday,
6:21 pm
stationary bike because he is dealing with ankle injuries, but he was out there on the field today. that is a good sign but he is banged up a little so not sure how effective he will be going forward but he is a prime time tight end so at least the patriots can lean on him as they foe forward. he is definitely a pickup. how about tb 12. after missing yesterday's practice, tom brady was back on good. so is julian edelman. he missed practice from a foot injury but his wife had a baby girl named lilly. congrats to him. a lot of news going on. pack to you. >> we'll keep our fingers crossed for rob gronkowski. a lot of news here, too.
