Rob Gronkowski back after missing Thursday's practice


FOXBORO — Rob Gronkowski was healthy enough to practice and speak to the media Friday, so any concern over his absence from practice Thursday should be quelled a bit. 

While the tight end was on the field Friday, the team had far from perfect attendance. Eric Lee was did not practice, though he spoke to the media Friday afternoon and did not seem overly concerned about his status. 

Alan Branch (knee), Rex Burkhead (knee) and Mike Gillislee (knee) all remained out to complete what’s been a week-long absence for the trio. Branch has missed the last two games, while Burkhead missed last week. 

The team’s official injury report will be out later this afternoon.
