Rob Gronkowski comes up limping after catch

Rob Gronkowski

Rob Gronkowski was a big factor in the New England Patriots’ offense early in the Super Bowl on Sunday, but he did take some punishment.

After making a catch on third-and-long in the second quarter, Gronkowski was taken down by two Los Angeles Rams defenders. His left knee seemed to take a shot as he was tackled and he came up limping.

One good sign is that Gronk waved off the team’s trainer after hitting the sideline.

Gronkowski has battled injuries all season, dealing with back and heel/Achilles issues. Seeing him come up limping so early in the game was a concern.

Gronk had four catches for 40 yards in the early going. New England kicked a field goal after Gronk’s catch to take a 3-0 lead.
