Gronkowski suffered a right knee injury at the tail end of a 21-yard reception in the third quarter against the Browns Sunday. After an MRI was taken on Gronkowski Monday morning, a league source confirmed to the Globe that Gronkowski had torn the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in the knee.
