Rob Gronkowski’s anticipated return to the Patriots will come as no surprise to the Jets who insist they have a plan for handling the star tight end so they won’t get Gronked on Sunday.

“We have calls in that are going take care of him and keep us good as far as defense versus him’’ linebacker Quinton Coples told The Post. “Whether he played or not we prepared either way. We’ve got calls and say he comes in it’s a different offensive formation so you have to adjust.

“It’s not that much more work you’ve just got to make the adjustments. He’s still human. He’s a good athlete and all we’ve just got to make sure we dial in on doing what we’re asked to do as far as the game plan and the calls that are made. Everything else should take care of itself.’’

Gronkowski hasn’t played this season recovering from offseason back and forearm surgeries. Agent Drew Rosenhaus told reporters Friday his client “has now been cleared by all his doctors to play Sunday in the Jets game.” Gronkowski was listed as questionable Friday meaning he had a 50 percent chance to play but Jets coach Rex Ryan assumed it was 100 percent saying he planned on facing Gronkowski all along.

“It doesn’t change one bit. Like we said from Day 1 I assumed he’d play. I’m assuming [Tom] Brady’s going to play. But that’s how much we assumed this guy was going to play’’ Ryan said. “I don’t know if they were saving him for us or whatever but I had a funny feeling he was going to play. After that first game I thought for sure he’d play against us the second game.’’

Gronkowski missed the Jets’ Sept. 12 loss in Foxborough but he has 21 catches for 222 yards and four touchdowns in three games against Gang Green. Now — at least according to his agent — he’s set for game No. 4.
