New England tight end Rob Gronkowski was carted off the field during Sunday’s game against Cleveland. On Monday, an MRI confirmed that the low hit from Browns safety T.J. Ward resulted in a torn right ACL and MCL for Gronkowski.

The injury came during the third quarter of the game, on a completed pass from Tom Brady to Rob Gronkowski for a big gain. Due to the new targeting rules, Ward aimed low, unfortunately buckling Gronkowski’s knee in the process.

While Coach Bill Belichick and Brady have shown the ability to overcome injuries, this loss is a big blow for the Patriots’ Super Bowl hopes.

Gronkowski came into the game with 37 receptions for 560 yards and four touchdowns.

Despite Gronkowski’s absence, the Patriots topped the Browns, 27-26.

*UPDATE* Gronkowski will likely be out eight-plus months rehabbing from the injury.
