New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (concussion, knee) suffered a mild concussion in addition to his torn anterior cruciate ligament and torn medial collateral ligament in the team's Week 14 game.

The New England Patriots offense has been an entirely different animal with TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) on the field this year. The Pats were 22nd in points per game before Gronkowski returned this year and were seventh entering their Week 14 contest. They were 30th in red zone efficiency without Gronkowski and were 11th entering Sunday, Dec. 8. They were 19th in passing yards per game without him and were 10th entering the game against the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Tip: Clearly, the New England offense will miss Gronk for the rest of the year. It'll open up more targets for the rest of the receiving core and Shane Vereen, who had a career day in the passing game after Gronk left the game in Week 14.

Updating previous reports, a source confirmed New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) has a torn medial collateral ligament alongside the torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Mon, 09 Dec 2013 07:01:52 -0800
Updating previous reports, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) had an MRI confirm a torn anterior cruciate ligament and damage to the medial collateral ligament Monday, Dec. 9.
Fantasy Tip: His season is over, and it's questionable whether he'll be ready for the 2014 season. You can drop him from your single-year leagues.

Updating earlier reports, the New England Patriots believe TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) tore his right anterior cruciate ligament.
Fantasy Tip: He'll have an MRI to confirm it, but the initial reports suggested the torn ACL. If so, he'll miss the rest of the year. Michael Hoomanawanui (knee) is also hurt, and the team may have to go with Matthew Mulligan. The team will likely have to lean on Shane Vereen, Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman more the rest of the way. With Vereen so heavily used in the passing game, expect LeGarrette Blount and Stevan Ridley to split a chunk of the carries.

Updating earlier reports, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) will have an MRI Monday, Dec. 9, but the initial testing wasn't encouraging, according to a source.

Updating an earlier report, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) will not return to the Week 14 game.
Sun, 08 Dec 2013 12:06:46 -0800
New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) left the Week 14 game after suffering a right knee injury. He limped onto a cart on the sidelines and was carted off.
Fantasy Tip: He suffered a direct shot on his right knee, and the injury looked significant. It's too early to speculate, but we could be talking about torn ligaments.
Fri, 06 Dec 2013 13:29:35 -0800
New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back, forearm, hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is listed as questionable for Week 14.
Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski has been able to play several weeks with these injuries and this week should be no exception. He should be started in all fantasy leagues.
