Rob Gronkowski is expected to play in the New England Patriots Week 6 game against the New Orleans Saints.

Gronkowski has yet to appear in a game this season. For weeks the tight end has been working out with his Patriot teammates and now it seems he will get medical clearance to play.

The Patriots and Gronkowski have wanted to ensure that his forearm was 100 percent prior to placing him on the football field. The return of Gronkowski to the lineup with help a Patriots offense which has struggled at times to find the endzone. Gronkowski has 28 touchdowns in his last 27 regular season games.
