Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, whose 2016 season was cut short due to a back injury that required surgery, has a clean bill of health for the start of training camp, Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston reports.

“He doesn’t have limits that I know of,” coach Bill Belichick said Thursday when asked if the next challenge for Gronkowski is to absorb full contact.

Asked what he has noticed from Gronkowski’s approach returning from his back injury, Belichick added, “That was all pretty much over with by the start of the offseason program [in the spring].”

Gronkowski had been a full participant in spring practices, and said at the time that he was 100 percent. But those practices aren’t held in full pads. The Patriots’ first full-pads practice is expected to be Saturday.
