Gronkowski has yet to practice this week, but he is expected to play in Super Bowl LII.
After leaving New England's 24-20 AFC Championship Game victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, Gronkowski sat out practice each of the past three days. With the Super Bowl against the Eagles not taking place until February 4, Gronkowski still has more than a week to clear the NFL's concussion protocol and shed his current designation.
Defensive lineman Malcom Brown (foot) also missed practice on Friday for the second straight day.

Conroe police Chief Philip Dupuis said two suspects took Valladares with them and left the child behind. Authorities tracked down two of the three suspects through a cell phone to a hotel in Webster.
Gronkowski suffered his concussion during the AFC Championship Game.
Because the Patriots actually didn't practice on Wednesday, the injury report is only a projection as to whether he would have taken part if a practice had been held. "Obviously it hurts when he's not out there for a lot of reasons, but he's doing the best he can do and we're all hopeful".
For a New England fan looking at Super Bowl MVP odds, the easy choice will always be Brady if they win. Tom Brady and Devin McCourty have been scratched from the injury report. He then re-signed with the Patriots, but only appeared in two games before being placed on season-ending injured reserve. "We'll stick to football this week, too".
