Gronkowski Injury: Sunday was a bad night for the Patriots as they lost at home to the Seahawks and likely lost star tight end Rob Gronkowski for at least one week, possibly two, due to a perforated lung. The Gronkowski injury may have come from a massive hit he took to the chest from Seahawks safety Earl Thomas which sidelined him for a period of Sunday’s game.
The Gronkowski injury has not officially taken Gronkowski out of the Patriots’ Sunday game against the 49ers, but the standout tight end has yet to practice this week, suggesting there is a very good chance he will not suit up against the 49ers. Due to the amount of practice the Rob Gronkowski injury has forced the Patriots tight end to miss, there is also a good chance he might not be available for the Patriots’ game in two weeks against the Jets.
The often-injured Gronkowski already missed the first two games of the season due to a hamstring injury and has been forced out of the Patriots’ line up numerous time down the stretch of seasons due to injury. The Gronkowski injury could be a major setback to the Patriots as the season winds down, even if he is able to come back to action after missing just 1-2 weeks. Gronkowski took some time to recover the last time he was injured as he only had two catches in the two games following his return from that early-season hamstring injury.
Fantasy football owners should follow the Rob Gronkowski injury closely and also keep a watchful eye on Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett. The veteran tight end filled in well for Gronkowski earlier in the season when he left the line up due to injury and could be an excellent addition to any fantasy owner who is looking to switch up the tight end spot in their starting line up.
