This shouldn’t be a surprise.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been cleared from the NFL’s concussion protocol and is expected to play on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. Gronkowski suffered a concussion in the AFC Championship Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Gronkowski will be available to the media on Thursday after not being available earlier in the week.

Gronkowski is a game-changing tight end and his availability will be enormous for the Patriots’ chances of winning the sixth Super Bowl in franchise history.
