Rob Gronkowski (ACL/MCL) has been cleared by doctors. He is not going to be placed on active/PUP for the start of training camp.

Summary

Now that Rob Gronkowski has been cleared before training camp, we can be confident that he is ready to go for the season. As our own Jene Bramel said "Allowing him to practice with the team means they've closed the PUP door for Gronk. That says they believe he's healthy enough to make the 53 right now. And that he's healthy enough to do more than just conditioning work on the side." Of course, the litany of injuries over the last few years might give one pause but keep in mind most of them were more freak injuries, not the sort of nagging conditioning issues which worry fantasy owners. As long as he is healthy he is Tom Brady's go-to guy here in the offense and he should have a tremendous season. (July 23)

Our View: That's the plan for everyone, but injuries happen all the time in the NFL. Gronkowski has had problems staying healthy dating back to his days in college at Arizona. If healthy for a full season, Gronkowski is easily a top-3 fantasy tight end.
