02:21 PM ET 07.10 | At a time when the New England Patriots are receiving nothing but negative news surrounding the tight end position, they have heard some promising news that brings a small glimmer of hope of the team having early season success. According to Ed Werder of ESPN, Gronkowski has already resumed light workouts. Werder added that Gronkowski is "in good spirits, looking good and making significant progress." There is still no guarantee that Gronkowski will be fully healed from back surgery before the team's Sept. 8 season opener, but there is some hope that he will be ready to go sooner than possible. However, it is hard for the Patriots to forget that Gronkowski's previous back surgery in 2009 when he was at Arizona cost him an entire season.

Nice of him to think about football for a change. Vegas and pr0n stars can wait.

Nice of the interns to remind us of his progress we just read about yesterday.

Seriously, monkeys, read your blurb before publishing. He will be ready to go sooner than possible? Well, that would seem IMPOSSIBLE.

How about sooner than believed... sooner than thought... sooner than predicted....

Well, yesterday he was making "progress" ... whereas today he's making "significant progress" ... and tomorrow's post will have him making "unbelievably significant progress" ... but all in all, the story is insignificant.

Well Patsy fans better hope they don't rush him back.....Better to get him back mid season - then to rush him back and lose him for the season.

Afterall he's only real TE they have left right now.

FanSided's hiring template is pretty simple. Question 1 is "Have you ever seen football on TV". Question 2 is "How soon can you start your job as FanSided's new NFL bureau chief".

I don't care who you are, you don't accelerate back surgery recovery. Many of us probably have people we know who have had multiple surgeries. This is now Gronks second and they probably won't stop there. I just don't see a career path in football for this kid. Too bad but it happens.

If Gronk continues his NFL career he'll be in a wheel chair before he's 40. Back problems are nothing to mess around with. I have degenerative discs (L4 & L5) and it sucks.

He's young and thinks he's invincible.

Hernandez is young and thought he was going to remain a free man.

Brain trusts they ain't.
