Rob Gronkowski might have a torn ACL and a torn MCL, but that's not enough to keep him from doing his own grocery shopping. The Patriots tight end showed up at a New England-area Whole Foods this weekend and proceeded to take part in what might be the first ever grocery store-motorized scooter-NFL player photo-op.
