Rob Gronkowski injury: Torn ACL feared by Patriots


UPDATE: Multiple news outlets have since reported that Gronkowski has indeed suffered a torn ACL. MRI on Monday will confirm.

*****

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski suffered what appeared to be a serious knee injury on Sunday afternoon against the Cleveland Browns and he is set to undergo an MRI on Monday morning to determine the full extent of the injury.

Gronkowski took a big hit directly on his knee from the helmet of Browns safety T.J. Ward, which sent him to the ground in obvious pain before being carted off of the field.

While there is no official word on the extent of Gronkowski’s latest injury, there is some fear that he suffered a torn ACL on the hit.

We can expect an official word from the team on Monday, after all of the medical tests are complete.
