There’s a reasonable chance that as soon as Rob Gronkowski wakes up, he’s going to have a headache.
That’s probably going to be nothing compared to the pain in his legs after last night’s Super Bowl LIII win.
Gronkowski had to get attention from the team’s athletic training staff after he was sandwiched by a pair of Rams defenders in the second quarter. The hit left his thigh swollen and misshapen, so gross that he actually let Tom Curran of NBC Sports Bostonto touch it to confirm.
“No, it’s about the same as other ones,” Gronkowski said. “But I can barely walk!”
Asked what it would look like Monday, he repled: “It will be red . . . black and blue. But at least I don’t have to worry about it now.”
We knew his back and hamstring had given him problems this season, but this was a new (and acute) one, which he admitted he needed time to recover from.
