He should be back this year from that.

We have yet to make full use of Brandon Lloyd, Wes Welker, Aaron Hernandez, the back up tight ends etc. As noted, running game takes a hit. But we will still be a lethal offense. We will still win it all. Cool

According to a source, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski suffered a broken forearm during the victory. Gronkowski, who had scored two touchdowns earlier, sat out the last 3 1/2 minutes of the fourth quarter and was X-rayed after the game.

Might just be 4 weeks til he's back on the field but he'd likely have a cast on after that.

Yeah, but the bone will have knit enough that he could actually use the arm, as opposed to just having it protected and being largely useless.


I know you've been watching the NFL long enough to know that the track record of guys catching balls with casts on their arms is very poor. On top of that, a cast makes it more difficult to keep the ball secure after a catch.

Sure, but he's still a threat at least if he can get out there and use the arm. If it does nothing but keep opposing defenses honest when covering other guys, he can be useful until he can shed the cast.

The injury hurts, sure. But we're a pretty good bet to make the playoffs and he'll have had at least 6 weeks to heal from the injury, maybe 7.

Doesn't hurt our Super Bowl chances too much, considering the Texans, Steelers, and Ravens all have had big loses as well. Back away from the ledge everyone.

The problem is he has to both come back for the playoffs and come back effective. Having half a Gronk isn't useful, as the SB illustrated.

Schefter says it happened on the last extra point. Somebody get a screenshot!

I'm not sure how much a broke forearm will limit him 6 weeks down the line. If we make the ACFCG he should be fully healed.

I saw that play (few mins ago), He didn't break it then. He barely blocked the player who didn't bother to rush the kicker.

Four weeks is a really bad stretch to be out. Jets, Dolphins, 49ers, Texans.

Depends on how severe the break is, which bone is broken, where in the bone it is broken etc.

Getting to the AFCCG is the problem. There's a good chance he will be 100% (or close to) by mid January. It's surviving 8 weeks without him being able to produce at a high level (or not playing at all).

The run blocking is really the big issue here. There are plenty of other guys to catch passes well enough to survive without Gronkowski. But the blocking is going to be a big, big loss.
