Patriots Rob Gronkowski Sustains A Lower Leg Injury by Sports Talk Florida Rumors
The tight end took a shot to the right knee from Browns safety T.J. Ward while trying to catch a pass from Tom Brady.
It was a scary looking hit in real time as Gronkowski’s leg buckled and he immediately went down with his hands on his helmet. He was helped onto a cart and taken back to the locker room a short time later.
