Gronkowski Listed With Concussion On Injury Report
It's official, Rob Gronkowski has been listed with a concussion on the Patriots' injury report from Wednesday.
Late Wednesday afternoon the New England Patriots put in writing what everyone already suspected...Gronk has a concussion.
After taking a helmet to helmet hit from the Jaguars' safety Barry Church, Gronk did not make it back to the field for the second half of the AFC Championship game.
And fans feared the worst.
Seems those fears are reality and the tight end did suffer a concussion and will be unable to practice with the team for the foreseeable future.
NBC 10 tweeted out the official injury report and spoke with a brain surgeon from St Luke's Hospital who says "Most adults who sustain concussion in sports related injuries will resolve entirely within 10 to 14 days."
Though teammates have described Gronk as bring in "good spirits" after the injury, he has yet to speak with the media himself.
ESPN reports that though he was at the team facility on Monday, the chair at Gronk's locker was folded up and he had left the building by the time reporters arrived.
Despite his long list of injuries over the years, this is the first time Gronkowski has ever been listed with a concussion.
And after finally making it through a season unscathed, this has got to be a tough one for the tight end, who may or may not make an appearance in Super Bowl LII on February 4th at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
