Rob Gronkowski Injury

Rob Gronkowski Injury, Rob Gronkowski suffered what appeared to be a nasty injury to his left ankle late in the third quarter of yesterday’s AFC Championship game, but he returned and insisted afterward that he’ll be ready to play in the Super Bowl in two weeks.
“It’s all good,” the Patriots tight end said. “Just watch the replay and whatever you see you see, but it’s all good and I’ll be ready to go.”
Gronkowski’s foot twisted in an awkward position when he was tackled after a 23-yard reception with 19 seconds left in the third quarter. He limped off the field and went to the locker room, then returned with 12:15 left in the game, but Tom Brady didn’t throw to him again. Gronkowski finished with five catches for 87 yards.
After catching 17 touchdown passes during the regular season to set an NFL record for tight ends and hauling in three more last week against Denver to tie a playoff mark, Gronkowski didn’t score yesterday.
“That’s like my brother,” tight end Aaron Hernandez said of Gronkowski. “It was weird not being on the field with him because every time I look in the huddle, it’s me and him. He’s a tough person and you see he came back on the field ready to play and I’m sure he’ll be great for that Super Bowl.”
