Rob Gronkowski leaves game vs. Saints with groin injury

Rob Gronkowski leaves game vs. Saints with groin injury”

The New England Patriots are holding their breath with tight end Rob Gronkowski. Leading 6-3 in the first quarter, Brady was flushed in the pocket but found Gronkowski down the right sideline, who proceeded to embarrass the New Orleans' secondary before rumbling into the end zone for a 51-yard score.

At the time of Gronk's injury the Patriots had a comfortable lead over the Saints so there was no sense of urgency for his services.

But in his day, football Gronk was as fearsome a beast as has ever donned a helmet, and on Sunday against New Orleans, football Gronk once again elbowed his way to the front of the national consciousness. Gronkowski's injury history is adding up.

The eight-year veteran had his third back surgery last season after getting hurt against the Jets in November. He is widely known as the best tight end in the National Football League but his durability has been concerning of late.

Prior to his exit, Gronkowski hauled in six passes (on nine targets) for 116 yards and a 53-yard TD.

With Julian Edelman out for the season with a torn ACL, the Patriots need a huge season from Gronkowski and new-addition Brandin Cooks.
