BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski said he should be out of concussion protocol Wednesday, and told reporters he expects to play in the Super Bowl.

"We'll see how it goes and what the doctors say," Gronk said. "I'm not the guy to say, 'oh, I'm out of the protocol,' that's the doctor's calls."

Gronkowski suffered a hit to the head from Jacksonville Jaguar Barry Church in the AFC Championship Game.

He's been under the league's concussion protocol ever since.

It's not yet clear what will happen, and Gronk says he won't lay odds.

"I don't give percentages," he said.

Gronk made his first public appearance in Minneapolis last night at the Mall of America--a video game matchup with now-Philadelphia Eagle LeGarrette Blount.

He said he enjoys the Super Bowl atmosphere.

"It's always fun, it's cool to have an experience like this, see all the fans come out here," he said. "Do events like this, see Blount again--good friend growing up, ever since he was on the Patriots when we met."
