Will Rob Gronkowski be back in Week 3? Bill Belichick isn’t saying

BY foxsports • September 18, 2013

By Ross Jones, FOXSports.com Anyone thinking that Patriots head coach Bill Belichick would tip his hand about tight end Rob Gronkowski making his season debut this week against the Buccaneers, would be dead wrong. In fact, Belichick had a swift response when a reporter asked about Gronkowski’s status for Week 3. "We haven't practiced today,” Belichick said via ESPNBoston.com. “We've just been sitting in a meeting. He looks great sitting in a meeting," Belichick was then asked what the tight end would bring to a Patriots offense that has clearly lacked some firepower, he paused before his response. "We'll see,” he said. “We'll see when we get him out there.” Classic Belichick delivering a stiff arm to all intrusive questions.Questions? Comments?
