Rob Gronkowski is Expected to Play vs. the Miami Dolphins

Jared Wickerham

According to sources, Rob Gronkowski is expected to play for the New England Patriots Week 17 vs. the Miami Dolphins.

After fracturing his forearm Week 11 against the Indianapolis Colts, Rob Gronkowski is expected to suit up and play against the Miami Dolphins in New England's regular season finale.

According to Tom E. Curran of Comcast Sportsnet, Gronkowski is expected to play Sunday afternoon and should at least have a limited role.

Gronkowski has been practicing ever since December 14 and has been increasing the workload each and every week.

In my honest opinion, I do see Gronk playing against the Dolphins for two reasons: 1. The Patriots still have something to play for as they could possibly clinch a playoff bye with a win as well as either a Houston Texans or Denver Broncos loss. 2. Gronk needs to shake off the rust heading into the playoffs; getting some full-speed action should help ease the transition.
