    Gronkowski carted off the field after knee injury

    Might as well make an official topic to discuss it.

    Its going to be a career thing i think...big body,just not made for big hits....back on IR ..looks to me like an ACL/MCL

    A HOF career that may be derailed by injuries....that sucks

    3 straight years with no gronk in the payoffs

    There's a reason why he fell to the 2nd

    Gronk injury

    No offense, but that's one of the dumbest posts I've ever tread. There isn't a single player in the entire league whose season wouldn't be ended by that hit

    People come back from MCL/ACL injuries all the time nowadays... The biggest concern is still his back injury history.

    Going to be tough for the Pats to win through January without their best offensive weapon, best linebacker, and two best defensive lineman.

    Tough injury season. Hopefully they stop playing like dogsh1t against the Browns here..

    Re: Gronkowski carted off the field after knee injury

    Don't know if he will ever finish a 16 game campaign again without a injury....everytime this happens I think what if Hernandez wasn't such a moron..this wouldn't have been as devastating as it is now.

    the NFL made this legal by not allowing hits high. End careers but tearing ACLs..just don't go high.

    ACls are easier to come back from...but this kid with his luck..disaster

    Hope to a speedy recovery is out a while...

    I hope Kyrie Irving leaves the Cavs and I have more respect for LeBron

    Unfortunately Gronk just happens to be involved in a bad hit sometime during the year that does something to him...its the way it is.

    Gronk injury

    Which isn't at all what you claimed before. At least you've moved the goalposts to a somewhat reasonable opinion

    Re: Gronkowski carted off the field after knee injury

    Every time we have a chance to seriously contend, Gronk goes down. 2011, hurt in AFC Championship. 2012, hurt again in the Houston game. Then an offseason of hell that makes him miss half the season. Now this.

    Most of it has not been his fault. Maybe it's just incredibly bad luck. But you cannot deny the pattern. Rob Gronkowski is an injury prone player

    I'm not even sure now...has Gronk finished a season healthy since his rookie year?

    Feel bad for the guy. Nothing you can do about **** like that.

    Re: Gronkowski carted off the field after knee injury

    Anyone who takes a hit to his knee like that is going to get injured. The only advice you can give there is to tell Gronkowski to fall on the ground every time he catches a pass.

    As much as I blame the Cleveland play for that dirty it,

    I blame the NFL for encouraging this ****.

    Ask ANY player and the majority of them would certainly prefer an upper body/head injury instead of a blown out knee/torn ACL injury.

    Gronk just can't catch a break, looked like a season ending injury :nooo: I'm usually an optimistic person but I just don't see a way we could reach a SB without him.

    Even a broken leg the best you could really hope for is he would be back maybe by the AFCCG but really the SB and they aren't making it that far without him. I could be wrong but I thought I heard him say I broke my F'in leg and then somebody asked are you sure and he said watch the F'in replay. Maybe they luck out and that's "all" it is.

    Now we just have to wait for Rosenhaus to tell Florio what the actual injury is...

    I think I am close to being done with this sport. Can't high high so now defenders have to end careers. I'm not blaming TJ Ward at all, that's what you're supposed to do now. Go low or get flagged. This sport is stupid.

    A lot of observers seem to think Vereen is a major talent, and the Patriots' best skill position player after Brady and Gronk.

    If Vereen AND Amendola live up to expectations, there could be a playoff run yet.

    No way could the Pats beat an elite, healthy team in the post-season ... but the Pats also aren't going to FACE an elite, healthy team in the post-season. Everybody has major injuries, suspensions, arrests, etc.

    I'm typically the last one to jump to "the sky is falling" mode, but if Gronk is done for the year, the team's Super Bowl chances just dropped dramatically.

    We've all seen firsthand what Gronkowski means to the offense.

    No bueno

    Just wanted to chime in by saying, despite Gronk's injury history, this is not something I'd put on him. There was no time to react to Ward coming at him like that, and this league has evolved towards big hits in the secondary after the catch. Finley, Keller, just some of the pass catching TEs that have gone down because of the changes in rules.

    I can stomach my team losing from being beaten. I can take freak injuries and bad luck. But I don't think I can continue to support a sport that willfully puts its players at risk. The sad thing is I can't really blame Ward for the low hit. But how is it nobody talks about the 5-yard limit on contact by a defensive player (besides here of course)?

    I wish him the best of luck in recovery, but I'm not sure I'll ever see Gronk play again, not sure I don't want Brady to just retire and keep what's left of his health. I'm just in a bad mood right now, and it's annoying to see people on TV lament injuries but dance around what we all know the problem is.

    With this many injuries to the Patriots, it's only a matter of time before someone else has it coming.

    Who?

    Peyton Manning today vs. the Titans. Bernard Pollard.

    Nothing to be ashamed of. Belichick has talked many times about how much he loved Bavaro when they were with the Giants together.
