During Sunday night’s loss to the Denver Broncos, New England Patriots’ tight end Rob Gronkowski went down with a knee injury late int he game and he missed the remainder of the fourth quarter and the overtime period.
It was reported earlier in the week that Gronkowski might not miss much time.
According to Patriots beat writer for the Boston Globe, Jeff Howe, the leading tight end has now been listed as officially out for Sunday’s game against the Eagles.
The Patriots lost their first game of the year last week and now stand at 10-1 for the year. They will look to get the win this weekend and may have to do it with a limited number of players.
Gronkowski has caught 57 passes for 931 yards and nine touchdowns.
