FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Rob Gronkowski is practicing again with the New England Patriots.
The star tight end took part in his first full-pads practice since undergoing back surgery in June. He also had three operations this year on the left forearm he broke last season.
Gronkowski participated with his teammates in drills during the 15 minutes in which reporters were allowed to observe on Sunday. The Patriots kept him on their 53-man roster instead of putting him on the physically unable to perform list. That would have required him to miss the first six games of the regular season.
Coach Bill Belichick hasn't said when he expects Gronkowski to be ready to play in a game.
The other two tight ends on the roster are Michael Hoomanawanui and free-agent rookie Zach Sudfeld.
