NFL: Miami Dolphins at New England Patriots Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots are playing a very good game against the Miami Dolphins right now, but the team has just lost one of its best players to injury: according to the team, tight end Rob Gronkowski exited the contest due to an ankle injury and is questionable to return. He was looked at on the sidelines before heading into the locker room.

Entering the game, Gronkowski was already listed as questionable due to an ankle injury – and it now looks as if the issue will end his game as the team would be smart to play it safe with him up 31-0. The NFL’s best tight end, who saw frequent action as a blocker today, has caught four passes for 44 yards on the day.
