Pats put TE Gronkowski on IR with forearm injury

  •  

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - The New England Patriots have placed tight end Rob Gronkowski on injured reserve with a forearm injury, guaranteeing he'll miss the rest of the season.

Gronkowski broke his left arm on the Patriots' seventh offensive play of Sunday's 41-28 win over the Houston Texans in a divisional playoff game. He had missed five games with a broken left forearm before returning for the regular-season finale. The Patriots had a playoff bye before the game against the Texans.

In 11 games this season, Gronkowski had 55 receptions for 790 yards and 11 touchdowns.

New England (13-4) faces the Baltimore Ravens (12-6) in the AFC championship game for the second straight year on Sunday night.
