Gronk Does NOT Have A Punctured Lung According To ESPN
Early reports were saying that Gronk suffered a punctured lung during the game against the Seahawks Sunday night, but apparently, that's not the case. ESPN is saying that it's a chest injury and may not be that serious.
Seahawks safety, Earl Thomas crushed Gronk and sent him to the sidelines for 5 plays Sunday night and it looks like that was the hit that injured his chest.
No word on if he'll play Sunday against the 49ers, but that's to be expected, we won't know his status for sure until Sunday most likely. Gronk did cancel an EA Sports media event that was scheduled for today, but we don't know if it's related to the injury.
