Foxboro, MA (Sports Network) - New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski
left Sunday's AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Houston Texans in the
first quarter after aggravating a prior injury to his left forearm.
Gronkowski fell hard on the arm on an incomplete pass in his direction during
the Patriots' second series. The Pro Bowl selection went to the locker room
for an apparent x-ray immediately afterward and did not return for New
England's remaining drives of the first half.
The third-year standout missed five games during the regular season after
fracturing his left arm in a victory over Indianapolis on Nov. 18, but
returned to action for the team's Week 17 finale against Miami.
Running back Danny Woodhead also departed the contest in the opening quarter
with a thumb injury and has yet to return.
