Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has removed any doubt: Hes playing this season.
Gronk Brian Poole Jersey , who said after the Super Bowl that he needed some time to consider whether he wanted to keep playing, wrote today on Instagram that he spoke with Patriots coach Bill Belichick and confirmed that he is playing this season.
I met with coach today and informed him I will be back for the 2018 season with the Pats. I have been working out, staying in shape and feel great. Looking forward to another championship run Brooks Reed Jersey , Gronkowski wrote.
Gronkowski did not say whether he received any assurance that he wont be traded, but he specifically referred to playing with the Pats, which suggests that he believes hes staying in New England.
When healthy Aaron Ripkowski Jersey , Gronkowski is the best tight end in the NFL. Although there have been reports that Gronkowski and Belichick dont see eye to eye over Gronk training with Tom Bradys guru Alex Guerrero, Belichick has to be thrilled to have the best tight end in the game back.
Winnipeg Jets defenseman Josh Morrissey was suspended for one game by the NHL on Wednesday for cross-checking Minnesota Wild forward Eric Staal.
The cross-check to Staals neck happened in the first period of Winnipegs 2-0 victory Tuesday night. Morrissey had a hearing with the leagues department of player safety Wednesday. No penalty was called on Morrissey, and Staal finished the game.
While we acknowledge Morrisseys argument that this is not an intentional cross-check to the neck meant to harm or injure an opponent Jason Sanders Jersey , this also is not a routine motion to box out an opponent, the NHL said in a video explaining the penalty.
Staal is in Morrisseys field of vision. There is no ongoing battle between the players. Morrissey is in control of this play and initiates contact. In doing so, Morrissey raises his stick substantially to a level above shoulder height at contact. This is a reckless strike to an opponents neck with sufficient force to merit supplemental discipline.
The Jets lead the best-of-seven series 3-1. Game 5 is Friday night in Winnipeg.
Well Roger Craig Jersey , its warranted, Minnesota coach Bruce Bourdreu said. Im not up here trying gamesmanship to get the league to call extra stuff. It is what it is though. It was a vicious cross-check to the face.
Morrissey has one assist through four playoff games. He had seven goals and 19 assists in 81 regular-season games. Womens Kendall Wright Jersey
