Gronkowski (knee) is one of five Patriots' players listed as limited at Wednesday's practice, ESPN.com reports.

Gronkowski suited up for Week 1's loss to the Dolphins and with no reported setbacks in his first contest back from a serious knee injury, there's no reason to believe that he won't be available Sunday against the Vikings. We'll let you know if that assessment changes.

Gronkowski (knee) caught four passes on a team-high 11 targets for 40 yards, with a six-yard touchdown, in Sunday's 33-20 loss to the Dolphins.

As expected, Gronkowski was on a snap count, with the tight end taking the field for 38-of-86 snaps on offense Sunday, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. Assuming no setbacks, expect Gronkowski to gradually shake off any injury rust in the coming weeks, while his snaps figure to increase in the process. In any case, he remains a key red zone threat for the team, an assignment that allows him to retain fantasy utility, as he works his way back to top form.
