02:31 PM ET 12.14 | New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski returned to practice on Friday. It's his first time practicing since breaking his forearm on an extra point play back in Week 11. Gronk was given a 4-8 week timetable, so he's right in line with that early projection. The Patriots have already clinched a playoff spot this season, hoping to catch the Texans, who are the No. 1 seed in the AFC. Gronk has 53 catches for 748 yards and 10 TDs on the season.
