Rob Gronkowski Injury Update: Patriots TE Says His Ankle Is Good To Go Before Super Bowl 46

When Rob Gronkowski was asked by a reporter what type on injury would keep him out of the Super Bowl, the stellar tight end paused and then responded, "Wait, are you serious?" according to ESPN's Chris Forsberg.

Patriots fans had to hold their breath as Bernard Pollard almost landed another devastating blow. The star tight end landed awkwardly in the third quarter of Sunday's AFC Championship game, twisting his ankle and limping off in pain.

How much this injury will affect Gronkowski two weeks from yesterday will be a main storyline going into this Super Bowl. Gronkowski is far and away the biggest New England weapon and causes mismatches all over the field for opposing defenses.

He was seen leaving Gillette Stadium in a walking boot which begs the question, precaution or something more? If Gronkowski can't go or is seriously slowed by this injury, the Pats chances of winning take a huge hit. Not only is he a red-zone machine, but he takes a lot of attention away from Aaron Hernandez.

Until Gronkowski is seen practicing at full strength, mass hysteria will undoubtedly grip the region.
