09:43 AM ET 12.14 | He can barely walk, but Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski says his obliterated knee won't keep him from appearing in the upcoming "Entourage" movie. TMZ Sports spoke with Gronk's entertainment manager Henry Penzi who tells us ... despite the fact he tore the MCL and ACL in his right knee last weekend, the NFL star is still excited for his big screen cameo. As we previously reported, Gronk will be playing himself in the flick. We're told Gronk is scheduled to shoot his scene in February -- roughly 2-and-a-half months into his recovery. Usually, it takes about a year to heal from Gronk's injury (unless you're Adrian Peterson).

So "That's just Manny being Manny" has switched to "That's just Gronk being Gronk" in Beantown vernacular, right?

I'm sure they can use the ol' "injured NFL player brings in the hot babes" angle...


Or they could dress him up in a rabbit costume.

Ah, he has his priorities in line I see...

Isn't Entourage based in LA?

Why don't they use an LA player? :)

And - for those non-Entourage fans who have no earthly idea what the hell I'm talking about...

He'd better find a new line of work. Outlook not so good for continued career.

Of course it won't. Gronk knows what matters most.

I wonder what the HTTRs think he should do, sit a home and eat while he watches football ?

Between his injury problems and his off field antics you have to wonder where his career is going. Does he becomes another of those "Yeah had a lot of talent, but..." guys?
