New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has reportedly suffered a punctured lung. He suffered this injury in Sunday night’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.

He’s expected to miss this week’s action against the San Francisco 49ers. You can’t question his toughness as he finished the game with the injury.

With Gronkowski expected to miss the game on Sunday, the Patriots will rely on tight end Martellus Bennett. He’s having a Pro-Bowl caliber season in his first year with the team.

It’s not clear what caused the injury. However, he did miss several players following a hit from Seahawks safety Earl Thomas.

“That was a big hit — probably one of the hardest I’ve got hit in my career, for sure,” he said. “By a food, fast player who’s like a missile. It was a good, clean hit. Nothing against it. … It’s a little though to breathe, but once it comes back, you’re good. He hit me fair and square. It’s football. You’re going to get laid out eventually.”

Bennett has 38 receptions for 504 yards and four touchdowns. Gronkowski has 25 receptions for 540 yards and three touchdowns.

This is the third time in the past five years that he’s had to miss three games due to injury.
