Report: Rob Gronkowski Will Miss Remainder of Playoffs After Reinjuring Forearm

Rob GronkowskiIf the Patriots are to hoist the Lombardi Trophy this year, they’ll have to get the job done without Rob Gronkowski.

According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, Gronkowski reinjured his forearm during the first quarter of Sunday’s divisional round playoff game against the Texans. The injury will reportedly require surgery, and the Pro Bowl tight end will miss the rest of the postseason.

Gronkowski originally injured his forearm back on Nov. 18 during a game against the Colts. He then missed five games before returning for the Patriots’ season finale against the Dolphins.

Gronkowski battled an ankle injury during the postseason last year. But while he clearly wasn’t 100 percent when the Patriots took on the Giants in the Super Bowl, he was at least able to play through the injury — something he apparently won’t be able to do this time around.
