Rob Gronkowski injury: Patriots' tight end breaks forearm in win over Colts

Jared Wickerham

Rob Gronkowski broke his forearm during the New England Patriots' blowout win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday afternoon in Foxboro, MA.

Rob Gronkowski's sweet Sunday came down to a crashing halt when the New England Patriots' tight end broke his forearm on an extra point attempt in the win over the Indianapolis Colts at Gillette Stadium.

Gronkowski's injury was first reported by Tom E. Curran of CSNNE.com. According to the NFL Network, the timetable for Gronk's return is 4-6 weeks.

Normally, Gronkowski's departure would have been noticed by the media, but by the time it happened (reportedly in the fourth quarter), the Patriots were blowing out the Colts. Gronkowski finished with 137 yards and two scores.

Gronkowski has caught 46 passes on 68 targets for 611 yards and eight touchdowns so far this season. Sunday's victory marked the third time this season Gronkowski surpassed the 100-yard receiving mark in a game and was also the third time he caught multiple touchdown passes in a contest this year.
