Rob Gronkowski had a hell of a game for the Patriots yesterday. He caught seven passes for 137 yards and scored two touchdowns as Tom Brady & Co. routed Andrew Luck and the Colts 59-24. But, on the final extra point attempt of the game—with the contest well in hand—Gronk lined up to help block for Pats kicker Stephen Gostkowski. And, as he blocked, Gronk suffered an injury to his arm. That injury was later revealed to be a broken forearm that will keep him on the sidelines for at least a few weeks, if not longer. It's a big blow to the Pats offense.
Oh, and that sound you hear right now? That's the sound of millions of fantasy football players asking Bill Belichick why the Pats star tight end was blocking for a meaningless extra point in a 59-24 game. Calm down, guys. After all, you do have another solid tight end option on your fantasy team, right? Errr…right?
