Jason Bridge / USA TODAY Sports

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was cleared from the concussion protocol Thursday, ensuring his availability for Super Bowl LII versus the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Gronkowksi, who was listed as a full participant in practice on the team's injury report, had been in the concussion protocol since absorbing a headshot during the AFC Championship Game.

The 28-year-old led New England in receiving during the regular season with 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns.

The only player on either team not to be a full participant in practice Thursday was Eagles defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan, who sat out completely while continuing to battle an illness.
