Rob Gronkowski: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Gronkowski (knee) underwent successful surgery to repair his torn ACL and MCL on Thursday, according to his agent, Drew Rosenhaus.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Dr. James Andrews said that the surgery on Gronkowski's knee, which was injured in New England's Week 14 win over the Browns, went very well. The start of next season is nearly nine months away, and there isn't a set timetable for Gronkowski's return, but it wouldn't be a surprise at all if he was unavailable to start the year.
Gronkowski (knee) will have surgery to repair his torn ACL and MCL on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Given the late-season nature of the injury and that Gronkowski was forced to wait a few weeks to have the procedure, the timetable for his eventual return will likely force him to a miss a significant share of the 2014 season, if not longer.
Gronkowski is expected to undergo surgery to repair his torn ACL/MCL in about two weeks, NFL.com's Albert Breer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Breer adds that Gronkowski needs to wait for the swelling in his knee to go down before the procedure takes place, while also noting that the tight end has been told that he should be ready for 2014's kickoff. Such a scenario would of course preclude any setbacks, and that clearly can't be taken for granted, given Gronkowski's injury history.
Gronkowski, who tore his right ACL and MCL on Sunday, has been placed on IR by the Patriots, ESPN.com reports.

Tests confirmed that Gronkowski (knee) suffered a torn ACL and MCL in Sunday's win over the Browns, Albert Breeer of NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Given the late-season nature of the severe injury, Gronkowski is likely to miss a significant portion of the 2014 season on top of the rest of the current one. The Patriots may opt for a heavier use of multi-receiver sets, rather than attempt to replace him with one of their other tight ends. Still, extra targets may be directed at Matthew Mulligan or Michael Hoomanawanui (knee) down the stretch.
The Patriots reportedly fear that Gronkowski may have suffered a torn ACL in his right knee Sunday against the Browns, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Gronkowski is slated to undergo an MRI on Monday, but his owners are advised to start looking into replacements for him. If Gronkowski did indeed tear his ACL, it would be a huge hit to the Patriots' offense down the stretch, one that would force the team to make some major play-calling adjustments, given the drop-off at the New England TE position beyond Gronkowski.
Gronkowski caught two passes on five targets for 32 yards, before a right leg injury forced him out of Sunday's game against the Browns, the Boston Herald reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Herald report notes that Gronkowski's knee bent in an awkward direction, as a result of a T.J. Ward hit, adding that the tight end couldn't put any weight on his leg, as he was helped to the cart. More on Gronkowski's status as we know it, but this has the look of an injury that could force him to miss some time.

2013

2012

Although he shared targets with Aaron Hernandez (124-113), Gronkowski posted the best statistical season for a tight end in NFL history. His 1,327 receiving yards were not only the most ever by a tight end but were sixth overall in the league last season. His 18 touchdowns – 17 receiving and one rushing – were also a single-season record for the position. Hernandez turned in a noteworthy season himself and actually was targeted by Tom Brady more often in the red zone (25-24) and a surprising 10 more times inside the 10-yard line (17-7) than Gronkowski, all while playing two fewer games. At 6-6, 260 and with great hands, Gronkowski snared 73 percent of his targets, tops among qualified tight ends. He also benefited from running the tight end routes in the Patriots offense, as opposed to Hernandez’s usual underneath routes, which gave Gronkowski a distinct advantage up the seam against undersized linebackers and safeties. That, and a brutal stiff arm, allowed him to post a position-high 22 catches of 20-plus yards. Gronkowski, who averaged 10.7 yards per target, got stronger as the season wore on. Over the final nine regular season games, he totaled 77 targets, 12 receiving touchdowns and 832 receiving yards.A couple possible hiccups loom, however. The most obvious is the ankle injury he suffered in the playoffs. He underwent ankle surgery in early February and was in a walking boot through April. He’s expected to be ready for the season, though the injury should be monitored in training camp. Perhaps more significant is the Patriots’ addition of Brandon Lloyd, which likely will cost Gronkowski looks. And, of course, Hernandez is still around, vying for tight-end targets.

2011

New England drafted two tight ends last season – Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez – which worked out well for the Patriots but made things difficult for fantasy owners. Gronkowski finished with 10 touchdowns, tied for the best mark at the position, though three scores (and 156 yards) came in the final two games when he got extra targets because Hernandez was sidelined. Gronkowski and Hernandez negated each other's value for much of the season as both were used interchangeably. Gronkowski had a monster game Week 10 at Pittsburgh with three touchdowns and 72 receiving yards, but also had seven scoreless weeks with no more than 25 yards receiving. Gronkowski received 16 red-zone targets in 16 games to Hernandez's 10 in 14 games. Should Hernandez go down with injury an again, Gronskowski's value would soar. Tom Brady likes to look for his tight end near the goal line (the duo combined for 16 targets inside the 10), and that would benefit the 6-6, 265-pound Gronkowski, who is also considered the better blocker of the two. With Hernandez healthy, though, Gronkowski will have to settle for splitting targets again this season.

2010

The second tight end taken in the 2010 draft, Gronkowski could emerge as the starter for the Patriots at some point this season. A mammoth target at 6-6, 264, Gronkowski will look to fill the void left by Ben Watson and Chris Baker. Of slight concern is his injury history — he missed 16 games his last two college seasons, including all of 2009 with a back problem. Alge Crumpler likely will begin the year as the starter, mentoring both Gronkowski and fellow rookie Aaron Hernandez. But the rookies have more upside and likely will be utilized in the red zone while Crumpler focuses on blocking.
