New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski left the stadium in a walking boot after injuring his left ankle in Sunday's 23-20 victory over the Baltimore Ravens.
Gronkowski hurt his ankle on a 23-yard reception in the final minute of the third quarter. He later returned to the game, telling reporters he went to get the ankle re-taped.
The second-year tight end downplayed the injury after the game, saying the ankle was "fine." He finished with five receptions for 87 yards but did not make a catch after he was hurt.
Gronkowski has had a monster season, setting records for tight ends for touchdowns (17) and receiving yards (1,327).
He also came up huge in New England's 45-10 playoff win over Denver last week, hauling in 10 catches for 145 yards and three touchdowns.
