NEW ENGLAND — New England’s Rob Gronk is out for the rest of the season after having a neck injury during Sunday’s win over the Buffalo Bills.
Gronk, who is on the Pats’ injured reserve list, is expected to miss the rest and be out for at least a month.
The Patriots announced the news in a release.
The NFL Network reported Monday that Gronkowski’s neck injury occurred during a kickoff return and did not require surgery.
The Pats said the injury was not considered a neck contusion and that Gronk has not missed a game in his 10-year career.
