Gronkowski out of concussion protocol, ready for Super Bowl LII

  Gronkowski out of concussion protocol, ready for Super Bowl LII New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was cleared from the concussion protocol Thursday, ensuring his availability for Super Bowl LII versus the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Gronkowksi, who was listed as a full participant in practice on the team's injury report, had been in the concussion protocol since absorbing a headshot during the AFC Championship Game.

Coming off a Super Bowl LII loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in which he caught 9 of 15 targets for 116 yards and two touchdowns, Rob Gronkowski may be weighing a career change.

The oft-injured Patriots tight end is reportedly considering retirement from football in order to pursue an acting career, a source told Bill Burt of the Eagle Tribune. He suffered a concussion in the AFC Championship Game, though returned in time for the Super Bowl, and apparently told friends that his injuries have taken a toll.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Sylvester Stallone have told Gronkowski he could make millions as an action star, reports Burt, which is apparently another draw because of his contract.
