Commentary

Regardless if Grommid was the attacker in a fight, if Grommid survives a fight, its ability will resolve.

Cards put into play by another card's effect (rather than being played from an out-of-play area such as the hand or discard pile) are not considered "played" cards. If an ability “puts” a card “into play,” bonus icons and “Play:” abilities on the card put into play do not resolve.

FFG has clarified that Grommid's "You cannot play creatures." ability should be treated as a constant ability that is active only while Grommid is in play rather than a play restriction that would be active in the hand.
