Rob Gronkowski (concussion) misses Patriots' walkthrough on Friday

You know Gronk's gonna play

The Patriots depart for Minnesota on Monday.

According to Ryan Hannable of WEEI.com, Gronkowski was not spotted by the media during the Patriots' Friday walkthrough at Empower Field House. However, there have already been reports that he is expected to play in the Super Bowl against the Philadelphia Eagles on February 4. The Patriots still have another week before they have to make any decisions about Gronkowski's status for the Super Bowl and they'll be hoping he makes progress through the concussion protocol by that point.
