Ian R. Rapoport of the Boston Herald is reporting that Gronkowski has suffered ligament damage in his sprained left ankle.
Gronkowski injured his left ankle late in the third quarter against the Baltimore Ravens after being tackled by Bernard Pollard. The good news is that Gronkowski was able to return to the action Sunday night, but was reportedly seen leaving Gillette Stadium in a walking boot.
Following the AFC Championship on Monday, Gronkowski spoke to the Boston Herald and said that he's optimistic and will be "ready to go" come Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis just less than two weeks to go.
Now with the recent reports indicating that Gronkowski has ligament damage, it certainly will cause many Patriot fans out there to feel a little uneasy of the situation—but I am very confident that Gronkowski will play in the Super Bowl, no matter what.
