  • New England Patriots tight Rob Gronkowski took an ugly
    hit to the head by Jacksonville Jaguars safety Barry
  • Gronkowski looked out of sorts as he got up and was
    taken back to the locker room for tests.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was sent back to
the locker room in the second quarter of the AFC Championship
after an ugly head-to-head hit with Jacksonville Jaguars safety
Barry Church.

Gronkowski was going for a deep catch on the right side of the
field when Church came across from the middle, hitting Gronkowski
in the head and drawing a penalty for unnecessary roughness.

Gronkowski stayed down on the ground for a bit, with CBS’s Tony
Romo noting that Gronkowski looked “wobbly” as he got up.

Here’s the play:

Gronkowski was walked off the field by Patriots staff and
immediately went back to the locker room.

Losing Gronkowski is obviously a tough blow for the Patriots,
especially while playing the Jaguars’ ferocious defense.
