New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who missed the beginning of the season as he recovered from an injury, has left the game on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns with a knee injury. Browns safety T.J. Ward came over to try and tackle Gronkowski and went low and looked like he connected with Gronkowski’s right knee. Gronk had to be carted off the field.

It looks like a serious injury and the team announced on their Twitter account that Gronkowski will be out for the rest of the game.

There was no flag on the play. The Patriots are currently losing 12-0 as well and they’ll have to try and comeback without Gronk in the lineup.

It is bad news for Gronkowski, as we get more updates we’ll keep you up to date. There probably won’t be much to report till he gets an MRI on Monday.
