The New England Patriots took another blow with another injury to a key player. This time, it is the player besides Tom Brady that they do not want to lose.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski was carted off the field in the fourth quarter against the Denver Broncos on NBC. Gronk, as he’s commonly known, was injured on a tackle.

He had six receptions for 88 yards and a touchdown before the injury.

It appears to be a knee injury. Sideline reporter Michele Tafoya reported that it may be an MCL injury. She said he couldn’t put any weight on it, as he was getting looked at.

If it is an MCL injury, he’s going to be lost for several weeks. Possibly, even the year.

If it is the year, the Patriots are going to be without their best offensive player. Scott Chandler, who signed with the team in the off-season, would become the primary tight end.

The 26-year-old has had a history of injuries since he’s come into the league. He’s missed one game this season and 15 more games from 2012 through 2014.

This season, Gronk has 51 receptions for 843 yards and eight touchdowns. He has five 100-yard yard, which tied his career-high, which he also had in 2011.

Before this injury, he was on pace to have his third 1,000 yard season of his career. He had a career-best 1,327 in 2011, then had 1,124 last season.
