With the Patriots trailing by four late in the third quarter, All Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski caught a pass that put New England into Baltimore territory.
And as safety Bernard Pollard tackled Gronkowski, Pollard’s leg landed on Gronkowski’s lower left leg, bending the ankle awkwardly.
Gronkowski has been taken to the locker room for further evaluation. He seemed to be walking with a slight limp.
Baltimore leads, 20-16.
