Gronkowski went to the locker room Sunday after taking a hit from Ravens safety Bernard Pollard on a third-quarter reception. Gronkowski returned to the game and described his ankle as "fine" in postgame interviews. Gronkowski later was seen by WCVB-TV wearing a walking boot on his injured left leg.
Gronkowski hauled in 90 catches for 1,327 yards and scored 18 touchdowns during the regular season. The latter two stats were league records for a tight end.
