Rob Gronkowski is probably the best tight end in football but his season could be coming to an early end. The New England Patriots star left Sunday’s game early and the team fears that he may have broken his forearm. This would be a big blow for a high powered offense.
Likely bad news for the #Patriots: Team fears Rob Gronkowski has broken his forearm, I’m told. Tests to confirm ongoing.

The team is already without Aaron Hernandez, so the tight end position would be in a real bind for the team going forward. However, Tom Brady can make chicken salad out of chicken poop, so this might not be a crushing blow. However, it will not be something they enjoy having to deal with. Their wideouts are fine, but they would be struggling without two of their top threats.
This is not confirmed yet, but it does not sound good. If Gronk is out, it could be a season injury blow. If that is the case, I would be hard pressed to predict the Patriots win the Super Bowl this year. However, a broken forearm could only sideline him for a few weeks. There would be a decent chance that he would be back for the playoffs. That would be a big bonues.
We will keep you posted on this injury. Gronk is one of the most interesting players in the league so it would be worse off without him. Hopefully he can get back to Gronking as soon as possible.
