Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski Says He Will Play in Super Bowl XLVI

Rob Gronkowski says his left ankle injury will not keep him from playing in the Super Bowl against the Giants on February 5th.

He was hurt after a 23-yard catch late in the third quarter after he was tackled by Ravens safety Bernard Pollard following a 23-yard reception late in the third quarter. The TE went to the locker room, but returned late in the game.

The second-year Pro Bowler was seen wearing a hard walking boot after the game.

Gronkowski led all NFL tight ends and ranked fifth among all pass-catchers with 90 receptions in 2011, while ranking sixth and setting a single-season tight end records with 1,327 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns, the latter leading the NFL this season.

In two games this post-season, Gronkowski leads the Patriots with 15 receptions for 232 yards and three touchdowns.
