Patriots fans got quite the scare on Sunday when Rob Gronkowski headed for the locker room after Ravens safety Bernard Pollard landed awkwardly on the tight end's ankle.
The injury looked gruesome at first, leading many to assume Pollard had done it again. Pollard, of course, is the guy who fell on Tom Brady's leg in 2008, forcing the quarterback to miss the entire season. And he's also the guy credited with the tackle on the play during which Wes Welker tore his ACL in 2009.
Gronkowski seems to have escaped any injury that serious, though. He returned to action seven plays later on Sunday, blocking on the play in which Brady dove in for the go-ahead — and eventual game-winning — touchdown. Gronk has no doubt that he'll be ready to suit up for the team's Super Bowl showdown with the Giants.
When asked about the injury by NESN's Dara McIntosh, Gronkowski said, "I came back. What's there to worry about?"
