Rob Gronkowski Injury Update: Patriots Tight End Reportedly Does Not Participate In Thursday's OTA

Tight end Rob Gronkowski did not take part in the New England Patriots' OTA on Thursday as he continues to recover from offseason ankle surgery, according to a report from ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Gronkowski underwent surgery in February to repair multiple torn ligaments in his ankle after getting injured during the third quarter of the Patriots' AFC Championship Game against the Baltimore Ravens. He returned to that game and played two weeks later in the Super Bowl, but was clearly hobbled by the injury.

The initial timetable for Gronkowski's injury was 10 weeks, which would have meant he would be able to participate in team activities as early as the end of April.

With fellow tight end Daniels Fells joining Gronkowski on the sideline, defensive end Alex Silvestro spent some time with the tight ends.
