Gronkowski has second straight limited practice: It may not sound like a big deal at first, but it is considering Gronk seems to be a tad ahead of schedule in his estimated return. I remember reading some articles which wondered whether Gronk’s entire 2013 season was in jeopardy. Now, it appears as if he’ll be back before the calendar turns to October. If you drafted him and stashed him on your bench while living with whatever fill-in you could find, chances are you’ll be rewarded for your patience.
Holmes misses Thursday practice: Santonio Holmes took a scheduled day off from practice on Thursday, and the team said it’s because they’re trying to limit his reps. Scheduled or not, no one really knows for sure what Holmes’ health status is for the season, let alone Week 1. Add him to the lengthy list of Jets you want to avoid on your fantasy rosters. I’m at a loss trying to figure out how this team plans to score points.
White good to go: After missing Atlanta’s last two preseason games with a dinged ankle, Roddy White said he’s going to be ready for Sunday’s opener despite being listed as “limited” in Thursday’s practice. Don’t forget that White has amazingly played in all 16 games of every season of his career since getting drafted in 2005. Chances are this isn’t the first time he’ll be playing through pain, so there shouldn’t be any reason for concern if you happen to own him. Play him and watch the points roll in against the league’s worst defense from last year.
