FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - With three games and a bye week under his belt, Rob Gronkowski is ready for anything in Monday night's game against the surging Carolina Panthers.
The New England Patriots tight end is ready for some extra blocking against a strong front seven, as much as he's prepared to run his routes, and catch passes. At this point, he just wants to play.
''Whatever the coaches have me doing,'' Gronkowski said Friday after practice. ''I'm going to perform to the best of my ability.''
Gronkowski missed the first six games of the season recovering from back and arm surgeries, but has caught 19 passes in three games. He returned with nine receptions vs. the New York Jets on Oct. 20.
''It's going well,'' he said, ''and I just have to keep working hard and getting better.''
The Patriots (7-2) and Panthers (6-3) have combined to win seven straight games.
