    I'm sure this is just done so the team has a "fill in" for practice while Gronk rests his ankle. He'll be fine.

    I think it is more to do with taking over Dorin Dickerson's spot. Dickerson was a TE on the practice squad that was just placed on IR. The team needs another TE for the scout team for practices.

    Dickerson and now Butler are there primarily for that reason, and also to be on hand in case of emergency - no different than at any other time during the previous five months.

    Bottom line is Butler is taking over Dickerson's spot, not Gronkowski's.

    But we must wring our hands and worry about everything. Hopefully he'll be 100%, but still, this is probably the most worrisome postseason non-Tom Brady Patriots injury ever.
