Gronk says he’s good, and that remains the official word

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski left Sunday’s win over the Saints with a groin injury. After the game, Gronkowski said, “I’m good.”

For now, there’s no reason to believe he isn’t. Time — and the injury reports to be released this week — will tell.

It’s unknown at this point whether he’ll have an MRI or any diagnostic procedures. If he doesn’t, then he truly is fine and it will be a non-issue for a team that suddenly has more than a few injury issues.

If all is not well, it will be ever harder for the Patriots to do what they want to do offensively. Eventually, these injuries will reach a critical mass.

  1. A stud when healthy, but he can’t stay healthy the way he plays. It’s a catch 22 cuz you want him to ball out but when he does he ends up getting injured.

  2. For all the league’s efforts to achieve parity it’s really injuries that are the great leveler in the NFL. Fingers crossed this ends up being minor. And now I will sit back and watch the trolls enjoy one more early Christmas present at the expense of yet another great player being banged up.

  3. Soooooo, I guess Gronk isn’t the best one to ask about Gronk?

    I suppose others know how he feels better than he does. Makes perfect sense to me………

  4. Yeah right, groin looked uber-painful as he sat riding the bike mid-speed while absorbed in the rest of the game…

    And to those saying he can’t stay healthy, he’s played 90 of 114 games plus 10 of 14 playoffs. He has 70TDs, scoring at a rate nearly double that of Gates, and on track to take that record in 4 more seasons, plus he already owns the postseason records by a mile. His YPA & YPG are much higher than other leading TEs and he’s the best blocker out of those leaders – and the most likeable!

    very dramatic

    highly doubtful he’d be on a bike on the sideline if it was serious

    Remember how they were gonna miss Edelman ?

    •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

    They played two games without him, and lost one of them … maybe it’s a little early to say they’re totally fine without him? Just sayin’.

    i am assuming that is some heavy sarcasm

    what they did today on offense, should have been done last week

    36 points scored and they are not even warmed up yet

    You do not understand enough about the game to assume anything and aren’t bright enough to interpret my sarcasm. Do you really think with Edelman in the game last week they would have struggled on 3rd and 4th down like that? Or if he were there today they would have coasted in the second half and settled for 2 FG’s? You are a curse to real Pats fans fanboy.

  14. The game was well in hand when he was sidelined. It was most likely a mild groin pull (strain) and he’ll work it out during the week with the trainers. No point in risking playing with a mild pull that could quickly become a major one if left untreated.

    And for what it’s worth, you don’t have MRI scans for pulled muscles.
