Buccaneers coach reveals Rob Gronkowski would play Eagles

Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians updated the physical situation of the injured Rob Gronkowski and said he is «very close» to being activated for the Week 6 game.

The current NFL champions will play this Thursday against the Philadelphia Eagles, in the regular round 2021-22.

The tight end hurt his ribs during the Bucs’ past games and did not play dates 3 and 4 of the season.

The Buccaneers comfortably lead the NFC South with a 4-win-1-loss record in their first five games of the year. Grok’s presence in the short term will be very positive for his offense.
