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