Injury Report: Rob Gronkowski Suffers Broken Forearm in Win Over Colts

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski left the game against the Colts (a 59-24 win) in the fourth quarter to get an x-ray, which confirmed he had a broken forearm, according to CSNNE’s Tom E. Curran and the NFL Network’s Ian Rapaport.

Gronk, who could be out 4-6 weeks, had just set an NFL record with his third straight 10-touchdown season, the most for a tight end in history. On Sunday, he had 7 catches for 137 yards and two touchdowns.

Aaron Hernandez missed Sunday’s game with an ankle injury, but you have to think the Patriots may try to get him ready soon if Gronk is out for an extended period of time.

In the meantime, expect Visanthe Shiancoe, Daniel Fells and Michael Hoomanawanui to get extended time at tight end if Hernandez and Gronk are out.
