05:41 PM ET 09.25 | New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been rapidly improving throughout the past few weeks as he inches closer making his 2013-14 debut and the often-injured star was once again a full participant in the team's practice. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick stated that Gronkowski has "definitely made progress," but he didn't have much more to offer in terms of Gronkowski's Week 4 status - which is very Belichick-esque. With the improvements that Gronkowski has made, it seems very likely that he will be a game-time decision when the team takes on the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday Night Football.

No one will be happier to see Gronk play this Sunday than Tom Brady.

Somehow I think he'll be injured again shortly after returning.

If I'm remembering correctly, they said in the beginning that Gronk would take 4 to 6 weeks to heal completely before playing in an actual game. Don't push his return, please.

This, most likely, is just Hoodie gamesmanship. Make the opposing D study some extra coverages and tendencies.

Finally the Pats play a varsity level NFL team this weekend, Gronk playing would be a major lift for Brady's passing game.

Exactly. They rushed him back last season and look how that worked out. The Pats don't need him this week, they need him for the playoffs.
