2012 Super Bowl, Giants Vs. Patriots: Rob Gronkowski Injury Update, Patriots Tight End Misses Practice

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski did not practice on Monday according to Patriots head coach Bill Belichick (via Dan Hellie's Twitter).

Gronkowski injured his ankle (high ankle sprain) during the AFC Championship Game win over the Baltimore Ravens. He was not in Patriots practice sessions last week. Last Friday, he was listed as questionable for the Super Bowl against the Giants.

When the Patriots arrived in Indianapolis yesterday to begin their preparations for the Super Bowl, Gronkowski was seen on the airport tarmac in a walking boot.

The Pro Bowl tight end has played a big role in the Patriots success this season and has 90 catches for 1,327 yards and 17 touchdowns going into the Super Bowl.
