FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski re-injured his left forearm in the first quarter of the team's divisonal round game over the Houston Texans on Sunday and is out for the remainder of the postseason, a source told ESPN's NFL Insider Adam Schefter. He will need surgery, the source said.
The injury occurred on a play in which Gronkowski attempted to make a catch down the sideline, but left the game in visible pain. He later departed the sidelines with members of the team's medical staff, and did not return.
Gronkowski's original injury came on Nov. 18 against the Indianapolis Colts, and cost him five games.
