NFL Injury Report:
In an expected move, the New England Patriots have placed
tight end Rob Gronkowski on injured reserve, according to Josh Alper of Pro
Football Talk. Gronkowski reinjured his left arm during last Sunday’s win over
the Houston Texans in the AFC Divisional round.
It was reported yesterday that the injury Gronkowski
sustained last weekend is to a different part of his arm than the initial break
that caused him to miss five games earlier this season. The tight end underwent
surgery on Monday, and while he’ll miss the remainder of the playoffs, he
should be good to go by the time the 2013 season begins.
Moving Gronkowski to IR provides the Patriots with an extra
roster spot they will fill before taking on the Baltimore Ravens this weekend.
Alper notes that New England could add a defensive end as insurance against the
injured Chandler Jones, who was once again limited at practice Thursday.

In what has become a long-standing and hilarious tradition, Thomas Menino, the mayor of the great city of Boston, made yet another series of egregious yet amusing gaffes when trying to rattle off names of prominent athletes who play for Boston sports teams. On Wednesday, while discussing a wager he made with the mayor of Baltimore over the outcome of the AFC Championship Game between...
More bad luck for Rob Gronkowski has Patriots fans worrying. Even doctors said it was just mere bad luck:
“It was just an unfortunate fall for him,” said Dr. Elizabeth Matzkin, an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. “Was the bone 100 percent healed? Probably not 100 percent healed. Was it as strong as it was before he broke...

We already knew Gronkowski would miss the rest of the postseason. With Gronk sidelined, Aaron Hernandez will be New England's featured tight end Sunday in the AFC Championship.
How big of an impact will the loss of Rob Gronkowski have on the Patriots' Super Bowl chances?
Jason: The injury to Gronk seems like a non-issue at this point. He has played very little in the second half of the season, and the offense has kept on rolling. The only way his injury really hurts is if Hernandez gets injured by Pollard. No whammies.

Everyone knows about the Sports Illustrated jinx. For those that don't know, here's a list.
Essentially, the premise is that whoever is on the cover of Sports Illustrated becomes jinxed. Some recent examples, the 49ers were on the cover before the NFC Championship game. They lost. The Patriots were on the cover twice before the Superbowl. They also lost. Rob Gronkowski...
