Foxboro, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski may very well make his season-debut Sunday against the New York Jets.

NFL.com cited Gronkowski's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, as saying doctors have cleared the two-time Pro Bowl star to play after recovering from numerous offseason surgeries on his back and forearm.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick wouldn't comment on the report during his morning media briefing.

"We'll list the injuries at the end of the day, like we always do," Belichick said.

Gronkowski has been practicing with the team and it was thought he might play last week against New Orleans, but was held out after medical clearance was not given.

The 24-year-old Arizona product twice fractured his forearm last year and played only 11 games, finishing the season with 55 receptions for 790 yards with 11 touchdowns. He has 38 TD catches in three NFL seasons.
