The first team practice is scheduled for Thursday, and coach Bill Belichick confirmed Gronkowski will be on the field, not on the physically unable to perform list.

    Rob Gronkowski has cleared on big hurdle toward his stated goal to play a full season. New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said Wednesday that Gronkowski has been cleared to participate in training camp with the tight end only eight months after tearing his right ACL. [ Smack talk season is back at Yahoo Sports: Sign up and play free Fantasy Football! ] Last week, Gronkowski said he planned to play all 16 games in 2014.

It would not be a shock to see the Patriots work in Gronk slowly and perhaps limit his preseason game snaps quite a bit until he shows he's fully ready. The good news, though, is that Gronk is back. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip? Email him at edholm@yahoo-inc.com or follow him on Twitter!
