New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been out for more than a month with a broken forearm, but has practiced the past couple of weeks.

According to Tom Curran of Comcast Sports New England, Gronkowski will have a limited role as he returns in the regular season finale against the Miami Dolphins.

The move is a good one because it helps Gronkowski to shake off some of the rust before the Patriots head into the playoffs to defend their AFC championship.
