Expected 12 week recovery time for Gronk puts him right around Week 1, but #Patriots could keep him out anywhere from 1-6 games to be safe

ESPN leading off with "Maybe Tim Tebow can play tight end because Gronkowski..." - Turned it off.

Gronk's injuries are quickly becoming concerning.

I fear he won't make it that long in the NFL. His body just doesn't seem to be holding up, and a back injury is no joke.

I'd be concerned.

Did they ever stop talking about him?

I like Gronk a lot, hopefully he recovers quickly.

Shame to see this. The guy's ultra talented but is also extremely injury prone.

Same thing happened to me. One Patriot fan kept saying they were flue injuries. Fluke or not, injury prone is what it is.

I don't think you understand what that term means if you're using it. Is a knee scoping injury prone? How many guys get that done every single year? Surgeries not going well and needing to be redone isn't injury prone is it?

Durp durp durp.

Injury prone is constantly getting injured like he has. Breaking arms, spinal stenosis, ankle injury, etc. He's missed alot of time due to injuries throughout his football career and yes that's including college where he sat out a full year due to the back injury.

As a fan of the division rival the Pats play week one, I'm doing back flips that we wont have to cover him because he's absolutely destroyed us the past few years.

As a fan of football in general, I wish him a speedy recovery, and a good career and a long, healthy life after it. It'd be a shame if a young, exceptionally promising career was ended because of this.

So let's say that every season, Player A suffers a knee injury on the last play of the regular season and misses the playoffs. Every season, the knee injury comes as a result of an illegal block that would injure any player who is blocked in such a way. Is that player injury prone?

Absolutely no reason to act like a 4 year old child throwing a tantrum.

And maybe you should go read the dictionary. He's had surgery on three different body parts semi recently, what's your definition of injury prone?

Well it usually involves some some idea that the same things wouldn't have happened to another, less injury prone, player in the same situation. If we assume that to be the case, then the back and perhaps the broken arm could support his injury prone-ness, but there's not really anything he could do about Bernard Pollard trying to rip his foot off or getting the infection after his broken arm.
