Football season is in full swing and fans want to hear about Rob Gronkowski’s injury status. On August 15, New England Patriots’ Rob Gronkowski suffered an injury to his hamstring and since then he’s been trying to recover as quickly as possible. Fans of the football player are wondering, is Rob Gronkowski playing tonight? Will Rob Gronkowski play in week 3? Tonight’s game, September 22, is a match between the New England Patriots and the Houston Texans. The game, which kicks off at 8:25 p.m. ET, will take place at the Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. On Tuesday, a video posted on ESPN (and the New England Patriot’s website) gave fans of the athlete a Rob Gronkowski injury update.

In the video, Gronkowski said, “I’m just doing everything I can right now to be as healthy as I can be. I’m improving every single day. Basically, day by day right now. … Obviously, you just don’t wake up and you’re 100 percent, but I’m satisfied with the improvements.” For more Rob Gronkowski news, keep on reading.

Fans want to know if he is playing tonight, but it seems even the player is unsure at this point. “We’ll see. It will definitely be a coach’s decision, a trainer’s decision. We’ll all come together.” It seems Gronk Nation will have to say some prayers and cross their fingers, because it is still unconfirmed if he is fit enough to take the field!

The 27-year-old plays tight end in the NFL and he’s loved the sport since his college days. Standing at 6 feet, 6 inches tall and weighing 265 lbs, the New York native was born for the sport and is definitely a fan favourite. He’s received several awards, including the 2014 NFL Comeback Player of the Year and he was the 2011 NFL receiving touchdowns leader. He was also a XLIX Super Bowl champion. With talent like this, we all hope the Gronk can play in tonight’s game!
