Rob Gronkowski ruled out of AFC Championship game with concussion

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski went to the locker room ahead of half time and did not return for the team’s opening drive of the second half of today’s AFC Championship game.

Gronkowski, arguably the Patriots best weapon outside of Tom Brad, took a helmet-to-helmet hit from Jaguars safety Barry Church and was listed as “questionable.”

He has just been ruled out for the remainder of the game with a concussion.
