Rob Gronkowski 'good to go' against Jets
New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has confirmed he is ready to return to action against the New York Jets on Sunday.
The four-time All-Pro selection has dealt with lingering back and ankle injuries through much of the season and has missed the Patriots' last two games against the Green Bay Packers and the Tennessee Titans.
However, Gronkowski told reporters on Friday: "[I'm] definitely ready to get back there. I'm good to go and excited to be back out there with the team, excited to get back out there on Sundays and play some ball."
Gronkowski added: "Sunday afternoon in New York, it’s going to be a hostile environment. It always is. They're a good team. They play hard. I mean, I can't recall a game where I would say they haven't played hard in my nine years playing them.
"So it'll be a good one. It'll be a tough one, but it'll be a good one again."
Gronkowski has 26 catches for 405 yards and a touchdown through six games this season.
The Patriots (7-3) take on the Jets (3-7) from 1pm ET on Sunday.
