New England star tight end Rob Gronkowski suffered a bruised knee in last night’s game against the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football. It was determined that he suffered a bruised knee after having an MRI.

The MRI also revealed that he did not suffered any tears in his knee. With this diagnosis, he’s considered week-to-week, and his status for this Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles is up in the air right now.

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reported early this morning that it wasn’t a major injury after he left the field on a cart.

“The injury doesn’t appear to be serious,” Schefter reported.

After leaving the game, he had x-rays on his apparent leg injury. An ESPN video showed Gronkowski walking from the X-ray room to the Patriots locker room with a slight limp.

He suffered the injury with 2:49 remaining in the game. As Tom Brady’s pass to Gronkowski went incomplete, Broncos defensive back Darian Stewart hit him low.

It appeared that Gronkowski’s leg whipped back as Stewart hit him. He was immediately in pain as the Patriots training staff looked at him.

Both Brady and head coach Bill Belichick were so concerned with their star player that they went go check up on him.
