Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski left Sunday night’s game against the Broncos on a cart with an apparent lower-body injury.
A source told USA Today that the injury was not thought to be serious.
Gronkowski tore the ACL and MCL in his right knee in Dec. 2013. The oft-injured tight end also missed significant time earlier in his career with a forearm injury and has a history of back problems.
The Patriots were already without several key pass-catchers in Sunday’s game, with Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola both nursing injuries. Aaron Dobson was put on injured reserve earlier in the week with an ankle injury.
