07:57 PM ET 09.01 | New England Patriots fans finally received the good news that they have been waiting for. After the news that star tight end Rob Gronkowski would be placed on the active roster rather than the physically unable to perform list, it was a clear sign that he would be ready within the first month of the season and now it looks like he will be back in a few weeks. According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, Gronkowski returned to practice in full uniform on Sunday afternoon. It is unlikely that Gronkowski will be ready for the team's season-opener against the Buffalo Bills, but it is looking more and more likely that he will be able to return by week three, which is all the Patriots can ask for.

And so, while the media have concentrated first on Aaron Hernandez, and then on Tim Tebow, one of the best tight ends in the game has quietly recuperated and returned to the team.

The Patriots are ready. For the pre-season, at least, the work of the Dark Lord is complete.

The Pats certainly got younger. All 7 draft choices made the roster as well as 5 undrafted free agents.

There's not a high probability of that happening.

He's not nearly as stupid as Hernandez.

There's "murdering psychotic drug fiend gangsta wanna-be" stupid, then there's "imitate WWF moves in Vegas while wearing a cast" stupid. One lets you play football when healed, the other one does not.

I hope for Gronk's sake he's grown up a lite after all that's happened. He's fun to watch.

They were already one of the younger NFL teams last season; it appears that BB has strongly bought in to the youth movement.
Rookies are also cheaper, and the Krafts are not into losing money.

He won't last the season.
