New England Patriots' TE Rob Gronkowski has a new injury


As if his offseason arm and back surgeries weren’t enough, New England Patriots’ tight end Rob Gronkowski has another injury.

The Patriots have listed Gronkowski as questionable with a hamstring injury.

After missing the first six weeks of the season, Gronkowski has played in the last two games. He caught eight passes for 114 yards in a 30-27 overtime loss to the New York Jets on October 20 and had two receptions for 27 yards in a 27-17 victory over the Miami Dolphins last week (Gronkowski did have a long touchdown called back due to holding).

According to Nicholas Goss of NESN.com, “Gronkowski has practiced this week, which is a good sign, but his participation has been limited.”

With quarterback Tom Brady struggling to one of the worst seasons of his career, the Patriots clearly can’t afford to lose Gronkowski again.

Speaking of Brady, his shoulder injury is on the injury report, but he has been listed as a full participant this week.

The Patriots will host the Pittsburgh Steerlers Sundayat 4:25 pm EST.
