Rob Gronkowski’s Broken Forearm May Hurt Patriots Running Game More Than Passing Attack (Video)

With all the excitement after the Patriots’ triumphant performance on Sunday from Foxboro, the absence of one of England’s biggest stars was almost lost in the shuffle.

Late in the fourth quarter, tight end Rob Gronkowski was seen leaving the field with a team doctor, headed towards the locker room. Following the game, it was reported that Gronk had suffered a broken forearm and is likely out for the next 4-6 weeks.

What does this mean for the Patriots, besides the fact that some footballs will be spared from hard spiking? NESN Daily‘s Adam Pellerin and Matt Chatham break it down with host Dale Arnold in the above video.
