  • Officially off the "Gronk is hurt" bandwagon

    Just saw on ESPN that after his injury he was Jim
    Ing up and down on it after they won the game.

    He kept saying "I'm good" the whole time. I mean i don't care what he says, but put that together with his big *** jumping up and down.

    He's not hurt that badly.

    Since its the pats we cant expect a real answer to this question till the game has begun.


    But, when it comes to sprained ankles, the most severe pain and swelling comes more then a day after the injury. I know guys who sprained their ankles playing BBall, finished the game and then woke up the next morning unable to walk without crutches for 4 weeks.

      Adrenaline can make severe pain seem nonexistent.




      I saw the play, he has to be hurt.

        He was probably shot up with pain killers and anti-inflamatories when he went into locker room. That being said, I also believe he will be good to go on Sunday!

          Good point. I know when I sprained my ankle I couldn't jump on it like he did, but than again I didn't have a team of medical doctors immediately tape it up and give me some sort of pain killer.

            I would expect him to play. It's the super bowl. If he doesn't, fine, if he does, hit him coming off the line EVERY time!

              Belichick would not be beyond holding him out of practice to make us think Gronk is less of a threat. If he suits up, he's a REAL threat.

                  Ironically, it is being reported that Gronk will require surgery to repair the ligament damage after the season.

                    LOL I agree but hope we could just fake an injury rather than snuff out his life

                      I sprained mine really bad on my morning run once and went to work all day. Later that night I couldn't walk. Ankle sprains are like that. His father said it and an ESPN doc said it. It's injured. If he's having surgery at the end of the season on it that to me means bad tearing or bone chips. With tearing when surgery is needed from what I have read its a high grade 2 or even 3.

                        Don't rule out the possibility of BB killing a Gronk sized hobo as proof.

                          Found this on the Pats Forum

                          Question: Will New England tight end Rob Gronkowski play? And, if so, how much will he be handicapped?



                          Answer: I wish I could tell you, but I can't. I consulted Dr. Steven Weinfeld, assistant professor of orthopedics at New York's Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, and he said he would be "pleasantly surprised" if Gronkowski plays. Basically, he didn't think there was much chance -- though he did say trainers could stabilize Gronkowski's high ankle sprain with tape and try to reduce the swelling and pain with an injection of an anti-inflammatory. Yeah, I know, Gronk returned after hurting himself last weekend and finished the game, but "often," Dr. Weinfeld said, "the maximum swelling or inflammation doesn't occur for 24 to 48 hours." Meaning? Meaning that Gronkowski's return Sunday was no indication of the severity of the injury. In fact, he might've risked more damage by getting back on the field, but, hey, that can happen when you're trying to win, right? Anyway, let me point out that Pittsburgh center Maurkice Pouncey suffered a high ankle sprain in last year's AFC Championship Game and didn't play in the Super Bowl. Last time I checked, making lateral movements while running wasn't as necessary for an offensive lineman as it was a tight end. If, however, Gronkowski, plays you can figure that his movement will be limited -- which means his effectiveness will be reduced considerably.

                          For the last time, it's not faked. Doctors are involved. What's next people saying BB is paying doctors?

                            Don't players always say "I am good coach! Put me back in the game." even when they clearly hurt? Just because a player says he is good that doesn't mean you have to ignore that he did nothing when he came back, had to have an assistant help carry him to locker and doesn't miraculously heal a high ankle sprain.

                            Don't players also say they are fine when they get concussion just to get back in the game? Happens all the time. They want to play the game even when they are injured.

                              The Giants are going to be prepared for a 100% Gronkowski whether he actually is 100% or not. If it ends up effecting his YAC then all the better.
