INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski did not practice Monday because of his high left ankle sprain.
Gronkowski suffered the sprain during the third quarter of the Patriots’ 23-20 victory over the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship in Foxborough, Mass.
Gronkowski, who has not practiced since the injury, has 15 catches for 232 yards and three touchdowns this postseason. Coach Bill Belichick said on Sunday that Gronkowski would be day to day.
Monday’s practice was New England’s first in Indianapolis, as the Patriots prepare for Sunday’s Super Bowl against the New York Giants.
