As Super Bowl XLVI approaches, questions remain about the condition of New England Patriots Tight End Rob Gronkowski, who is dealing with a high left ankle sprain. reported the news that Gronkowski missed practice on Monday. He was seen in a walking boot when the team arrived in Indianapolis on Sunday.

The injury came en route to a 23-20 post-season victory over the Baltimore Ravens which gave the Patriots the AFC Championship and ensured their trip to the Super Bowl.

According to the Boston Globe, Gronkowski was no longer wearing the boot when he appeared for Media Day today.

“He’s really what makes our offense go, so I hope we have him out there,” New England quarterback Tom Brady told the Globe.

Gronkowski’s absence would likely be welcome news for the New York Giants.

In a season that has seen the return to prominence for many tight ends in the league, Gronkowski has been a stand out. He holds the NFL record for touchdowns by a tight end with 14 and was the first selection to the AFC Pro Bowl team.
