Belichick On Gronkowski Injury: “We’ll See How It Goes”
FOXBORO (CBS) – When tight end Rob Gronkowski went to the ground with a leg injury during Sunday’s game, Patriots fans everywhere held their collective breath.
Two days removed from the injury, Patriots coach Bill Belichick did little to reveal any new details about Gronkowski’s injury.
“We’ll see how it goes with Rob and some of the other players that are getting treatment. We’ll just see how that is when we get back out on the field,” said Belichick during a conference call Tuesday. “We haven’t practiced, obviously, in the past couple days. We’ll just see how all that is when it’s time to go.”
A source tells WBZ-TV’s Dan Roche that Gronkowski will be “fine” for Super Bowl XLVI in two weeks.
Gronkowski left the field after being taken down by safety Bernard Pollard at the end of a 23-yard gain with 24 seconds left in the third quarter.
The Pats tight end then had his ankle re-taped in the locker room and managed to return for the end of the Patriots’ touchdown drive in the fourth quarter. He finished the day with five catches for a team-high 87 yards.
After the game, Gronk had little to say about his injury.
“It’s good,” he said.
