FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is on Instagram.
The fun-loving star introduced himself to the social media platform with a video that showed him working out and goofing off.
Gronkowski's verified account is one of the first to take advantage of a new feature allowing users to post 60-second videos. The feature was unveiled on Tuesday.
Gronkowski, 26, is a four-time Pro Bowl selection who has come to be known as much for his partying as his on-field dominance.
Chiefs: General manager John Dorsey defended the club's handling of Pro Bowl linebacker Justin Houston, who had surgery on his ACL last month and could miss the upcoming season. In his first comments since news of the surgery became public, Dorsey said the Chiefs' medical staff and renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews worked in concert in diagnosing and treating Houston's injury. Houston hurt his left knee against Buffalo in November, and at the time he was diagnosed with a mere hyperextension. Houston returned for the playoffs but was so limited that he was rendered ineffective, and he ultimately had surgery to repair a "non-functioning ligament" in mid February. Dorsey said the proper course of action was taken in the rest and rehabilitation that accompanied the original injury, and that it was impossible to foresee needing an ACL surgery at that point.
