"I just go in there and execute the plays that are called", Allen said.

Gronkowski participated fully in practice on Thursday.

Gronkowski said he believes that the team doctors were just using the bye week to be as cautious with the injury as possible. "There's a lot of time to prepare still (and I think we should) use that time wisely".

"It's always great when he's out there", Brady said.

"What he said was definitely inspiring - to just cherish the moment", Gronkowski said.
