No practice reps Tuesday
Gronkowski (ribs) didn't participate in Tuesday's practice, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
According to Jenna Laine of ESPN.com, head coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday that he's encouraged by the progress Gronkowski has made in his recovery from the injury to his ribs that he sustained Week 3, but the Buccaneers won't decide whether the tight end will travel to Philadelphia for Thursday's game against the Eagles until after Wednesday's practice. Despite Arians' optimism, Gronkowski hasn't taken a tangible step forward in terms of on-field activity since suffering the injury -- he's now been listed as a non-participant for eight consecutive practices. Even if Gronkowski manages limited activity Wednesday, he'll likely be treated as a game-time decision for Thursday's contest, if not listed as doubtful or out in advance.
