INDIANAPOLIS — Patriots All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski says he could be anywhere from in perfect health to "2 percent" for the Super Bowl with his high left ankle sprain.

Seated at a podium and without the walking boot he wore last week, Gronkowski didn't seem overly concerned today that he would miss Sunday's game against the New York Giants, saying "'The game is six days away. I can be 100 percent by then or I can be 2 percent by then. It's day to day."
Gronkowski set an NFL record for his position this season with 17 touchdown catches and had 90 receptions overall for 1,327 yards. He's made a team-high 15 catches for a 15.5-yard average and three TDs in the postseason. He hurt the ankle in the AFC title game victory against Baltimore.
