Belichick pleads ignorance on Gronkowski injury

Bill Belichick held a conference call with reporters a short while ago, and of course was asked about Rob Gronkowski’s injury – in case you hadn’t heard, the tight end broke his left forearm in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s win over the Colts and underwent surgery this morning.

“No. I don’t really have anything on that,” Belichick said when asked about Gronkowski. “Our medical people are looking at all of our players today when they come in and assess their situation, as they always do on Monday, catch up with them.”

He said essentially the same thing when asked about Gronkowski having surgery.

Belichick was also asked about Aaron Hernandez and when he’ll be making a return, and did not give a specific answer.

A league source has said that Hernandez, who’s been recovering from an ankle sprain, was held out of Sunday’s game with an eye toward Thursday night’s game against the Jets.
