He was taken from the field to the dressing room, had it re-taped and returned to play.  He was on the field when Tom Brady scored the go ahead touchdown on a one yard dive.

Generally injured players do not speak with the media after the game, including an attempted bilingual interview with ESPN Deportes but Gronk...
