Rob Gronkowski Cleared for Week 1 Against Dolphins

Rob Gronkowski Cleared for Week 1 Against Dolphins

Elsa/Getty Images(FOXBOROUGH, Mass.) -- Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski said he's ready to go for their season opener against the Miami Dolphins.

Gronkowski had reconstructive surgery on his left knee during the offseason and doctors gave him the green light on Monday.

"Super excited, super pumped. I feel mentally and physically ready, for sure. No doubt about it," Gronkowski said Monday. "My mentality now is I'm ready to go, I'm ready to be out there, I'm ready to hit, I'm ready to start going."

Gronkowski plans on wearing a knee brace on Sunday, but doesn't see that stopping him from being productive.

"It feels good to be out here now this week, preparing for the Dolphins, knowing that I put myself in the best situation the last few weeks and few months to get back out here," he said. "That was my plan the whole time -- to work as hard as I could so I'd be ready for this week."

Ryan Mallett Traded to Texans

Ryan Mallett Traded to Texans

Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Houston Texans have acquired quarterback Ryan Mallett from the New England Patriots for a conditional sixth or seventh-round pick in 2016, a source said on Sunday.

Mallett had served as the primary backup for Tom Brady in each of the last two seasons after being drafted in the third round in 2011. A 6'6" quarterback out of Arkansas, Mallett will enter Houston as the backup for veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick. 

The Texans will waive Case Keenum in order to make room for Mallett and still have rookie Tom Savage on the depth chart. It was a rookie in New England that led to the trade as Jimmy Garoppolo completed 46 of 79 passes for 618 yards and five touchdowns in the preseason.

During limited action this year, Mallett was just 14-for-26 passing in three games with one touchdown.

Gronkowski Participates in First Full-Team Drills

Gronkowski Participates in First Full-Team Drills

Elsa/Getty Images(FOXBOROUGH, Mass.) -- For the first time this preseason, the New England Patriots watched as Tom Brady connected with Rob Gronkowski for a touchdown pass during practice Monday afternoon. It was the first time Gronkowski had participated in full-team drills since having offseason surgery to repair a torn ACL. 

"It's definitely huge to get it going again," said Gronkowski. "I've been working with Tom since I've been out here, but we haven't been doing it vs. the defense or anything. So it was good to be out there and 'Boom!' it was just like it was never missed before."

Gronkowski has said that he plans to play all 16 games this season after playing a combined 18 games the last two seasons. There was no full contact for Gronkowski, but rather some minor hitting that included having the ball stripped from him by rookie corner Malcolm Butler.

Gronkowski, 25, has been participating in some drills since the start of camp on July 24 and is planning to suit up for week one. However, there has been no word on if he will play in one of New England's final two preseason games.

Rob Gronkowski Cleared for Training Camp

Rob Gronkowski Cleared for Training Camp

Elsa/Getty Images(FOXBOROUGH, Mass.) -- New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been cleared to play by doctors and will be ready for training camp on Thursday, head coach Bill Belichick said Wednesday.

"It's a positive," said veteran offensive lineman Logan Mankins, one of the Patriots' captains. "We were all hoping Gronk would have a good recovery and so far he has. Anytime you can have Gronk on the field, it's great."

Gronkowski underwent surgery on his right ACL on Jan. 9 and has fully recovered.

Gronkowski said last week that he plans on playing in all 16 games this season. "I'm always antsy to get back on the field, no matter when it is. I just want to play football. I love playing the game," he said then.

The Patriots open up against the Miami Dolphins on Sept. 7.
