The Patriots reportedly fear Rob Gronkowski sustained a broken forearm in Sunday's win over the Colts.
Late in the fourth quarter, Gronkowski headed to the locker room and didn't return. He's set for X-rays to determine if there's a fracture. Before going down, Gronk piled up a 7/137/2 line in his usual dominating fashion. All owners can do for now is hold their collective breath.

So I guess Hernandez owners rejoice if he ever comes back? LOL

Jerramy Stevens still plays TE right?

Arm is broken:

Tom Curran of Comcast SportsNet New England reports X-rays show Rob Gronkowski indeed has a broken forearm.
It's likely to cost Gronkowski 4-6 weeks, if not longer. Although they are different kinds of players, the loss of Gronk may force the Patriots to act with more urgency on Aaron Hernandez (ankle), who's been practicing the past two weeks but has not played in games. Gronkowski is such a valuable player to New England's offense that he figures to be kept on the roster, rather than placed on injured reserve, in hopes of a very late-season or postseason return. It's obviously a crushing blow to fantasy owners, as well. Gronkowski was the No. 1 overall fantasy tight end through ten games.

4-6 weeks is optomistic....we usually cast a person for 6 weeks and then it's another 2-3 weeks with a splint, and that's the earliest, that's with a guy that is not getting hit by 250 lb LBer's or blocking 325 fat guys

Ouch, top TE gonna be a huge blow to teams that spent a hefty price on him.

AHern owners meanwhile eagerly pray for him to get healthy ASAP.

This blows. I traded Chris Johnson for him weeks ago in my no TE league and he's been a monster. Luckily I have Hernandez also and I really hope he's ready to play next week and can produce decently.
