UPDATE: Multiple reports indicate that Gronkowski has indeed suffered a broken arm. Early estimates put Gronkowski out for 4 to 6 weeks.
New England Patriots fans are used to seeing tight end Rob Gronkowski show up on the injury report, but he is never in serious danger of missing the game. It is usually just another mind game by head coach Bill Belichick, but this week, there could be some cause for concern among the Patriots and their fans.
Reports are indicating that Gronkowski is undergoing x-rays on his forearm following the Patriots blowout victory over the Indianapolis Colts. There is some fear that the star tight end could have suffered a broken arm.
There is no word on whether the x-rays are to the spiking arm or non-spiking arm of the Gronk.
PFT has learned that Gronkowski is getting X-rays on his forearm this evening, following Sunday’s blowout win over the Colts in which he had seven catches for 137 yards and two touchdowns.
Gronkowski was unavailable to the media following the game, so there are no details about the extent of the injury.
Knowing the Patriots, they will keep any details about the injuries as secret as possible and we may never know what exactly the problem was with Gronkowski’s forearm.
