    how do you break your arm on XP try?

    Of all the freak injuries, this one may take the cake...  Extra point leading by 30 points.  How did it happen?

    Anybody get a good look at it?

    did he fall on it?  Agree its better than a knee or something lower body.  Bones heal.  Put a couple titanium pins in it , wrap it up , get back out there.

    Re: how do you break your arm on XP try?

    I just rewatched the play on NFL.com. Gronk was lined up on the right wing as usual. A Colts' player tried to shoot the gap between Gronk and the end lineman. It appears Gronk raised his left elbow in an attempt to block the player. I don't know if his arm got jammed by the rusher or his own lineman. It is hard to see. But his arm was dead at his side when he walked off the field. It appears to be a freak injury. Maybe when the coaches film is released on Wednesday I will get a better angle.

    Crazy bad luck...  Maybe he did "relax" a little since it was a meaningless point...  possibly, this is a wake up call to BB to rest your best players for those situations...

    [/QUOTE]He didn't relax at all but he kind of threw out his left arm to slow down the inside rusher. It was a freak play but that's football. Injuries happen.

    probably broke it on the play before and didn't know it until he had to block with it

    I'm guessing it was broken previously & that play really tweaked it. It may have been broken on the TD catch where his forearm was hit by the defender's helmet.

    Go To your own paper's forum, I live in NYC and I am not on any the Jets forums. I did not say I was glad Revis got sent to his "Island" so saying your happy a guy got hurt is sick, says a lot about your faith in your team winning, they need a key player down to win... You are a pathetic poor little man patrolling Boston sites to make yourself feel better,,, so inline with being a Jets fan, Roach Ryan would be proud. I assume he's your role model. Today must be your day Twinkies might not be gone and Gronk had surgery.

    How does anyone know he will be back for the playoffs. Broken arms can take months to heel if the break is severe. It's better than a knee injury for sure but a broken forearm does not sound like a minor injury to me. I hope you are right but Hernandez's injury appears to have been much more serious than everyone first thought.

    Don't all breaks come in freakish ways?  When I broke bones playing sports, it always came in bizarre ways.   Just saying.

    I don't think there is a point in over-analyzing it.

    Look at this way: WIth Gronk's ankle/hip issues, he can now rest all of that and be ready for the postseason.

    As great as he is, it's not that devastating because of what BB has here in the pipeline. It's like an embarrassment of riches on offense.

     

    [/QUOTE]

    Wish I could share the optimism, Rusty, but I can't. At least, not for now. Depth is not a replacement for talent. Fells and Who-Man can block, but will never be mistaken for Gronk running routes and catching passes. Shiancoe can catch the football (although he has yet to have the chance to prove that here), but offers significantly less bulk than Gronk when blocking.

    Gronk's extraordinary combinations of size/speed/athleticism and blocking/catching/route-running cannot be replaced by any one tight end on the Pats roster. If you sub him with Shiancoe, the run game may suffer. If you sub him with Who-Man or Fells, the pass game will most definitely suffer.  Gronk, especially in play action sets, may be the most valuable offensive player (non-QB) in the game.

    Thus, for the Pats to replace him, they need to put two tight ends on the field...which, of course means you have to draw down (WR, RB) from somewhere else. That draw tips your hand to the defense.

    Rob Gronkowski - TE -  Patriots

    Rob Gronkowski (broken left forearm) will be sidelined 4-8 weeks after undergoing surgery Monday.

    Gronk is expected to be back in much closer to four weeks than eight weeks, but in a worst-case scenario, he'd be dicey for a potential AFC Championship Game appearance. Gronk played through a high-ankle sprain just two weeks after the fact in last season's Super Bowl, and should be ready for the playoffs, if not Week 16 or 17.     Source:  CSN New England Nov 19 - 1:15 PM

    You can break your arm laying in bed if a guy with a helmet launches himself at you.  One of the sports writers mentioned he took a helmet to the forearm.  That will do it alright.
