The Patriots saw the worst thing they could possibly see late in the game against the Broncos. Rob Gronkowski appeared to injure his leg. NBC reported that they are looking at his right MCL, and he is unable to put any weight on the leg. Gronk was carted off the field.
Both teams played in difficult conditions as it snowed in Denver throughout the game. If Gronkowski’s injury is serious, it would be a huge blow to the Patriots. New England has already lost Julian Edelman for the season. Edelman was their best wide receiver, but Gronkowski is the number one option for Brady in the Patriots offense.
Gronkowski appeared to get hit in the knee on the replay. He was immediately ruled out for the rest of the game. We will continue to update you as more information is released.
