New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski remains in the NFL concussion protocol but was present at the start of practice Sunday for the second day in a row with a week to go for Super Bowl LII against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Defensive tackle Malcom Brown (foot) and defensive end Deatrich Wise (concussion) also were in uniform at Sunday’s practice, according to ESPN.

Gronkowski was in full pads again after sitting out the first two practices of the week with a concussion he sustained in last Sunday’s AFC Championship against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The team’s injury report released Wednesday was the first time the Patriots acknowledged that Gronkowski suffered a concussion in the 24-20 comeback victory over the Jaguars. 

Gronkowski missed the second half after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit from Jaguars safety Barry Church in the second quarter. 

Gronkowski was wobbly as he got to his feet. Church was later fined approximately $24,000 for his head shot on Gronkowski.

New England and Philadelphia will meet next Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. The Patriots are scheduled to travel to Minneapolis on Monday.
