New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski continues to participate in practice, but Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Wednesday that Gronkowski has not yet received medical clearance to play in a game, the Boston Globe reported.

Gronkowski sustained a broken arm on Nov. 18 and he was expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

"He did more last week than he did the week before, and we'll see where he's at today and tomorrow when we go out there, see what he can do," Belichick said on Wednesday, according to the Globe. "We'll take it day-to-day, based on where he's at. He's moving along, not ready yet."

Belichick added that when he's medically cleared to play, then the coaching staff will decide whether he will play.

Gronkowski has missed five games, and the Patriots have won four of them. He has caught 53 passes for 748 yards and 10 touchdowns this season.
