Rob Gronkowski's postseason didn't last long as he re-injured the forearm he broke two months ago and will miss the rest of the playoffs, per multiple reports. He is expected to need surgery again to repair the forearm.
The Boston Herald also reported that rookie defensive end Chandler Jones suffered an ankle injury and that running back Danny Woodhead suffered a thumb injury. Their status for the AFC Championship rematch against Baltimore is uncertain at this time.
Even with the injuries, the Patriots still manhandled the Houston Texans, 41-28, on Sunday and are now one step away from the franchise's eighth Super Bowl appearance.
