It’s not good news for the New England Patriots.

Following their blowout win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday afternoon, Patriots star tight end Rob Gronkowski is undergoing x-rays on an injured forearm. There is no word on whether it was Gronk’s right or left arm, but New England is preparing for the worst.

Per Mike Garafolo of USA Today:

If the Patriots fear comes to a realization, it is a devastating blow to the Patriots and their passing attack. Gronkowski has struggled with minor injuries all season but this one could put him out of commission for the rest of the season.
