The New England Patriots and the Gronkowski family are providing the following statement regarding Rob Gronkowski’s injured right knee.

“During Sunday night’s game, Rob Gronkowski sustained a bone bruise/sprain of his right knee.  His status will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis and listed accordingly on the practice participation and injury reports.  There is no timetable for his readiness to return, which will be determined in the days or hours prior to the appropriate game. Any timetable reported prior to that final determination would be speculative.”

Wait a second! Gronk’s family got in on the release? I though his injury was supposed to essentially be a non-issue. Like the only time you’d expect the family to make a statement on an injury in the NFL is when someone has a broken neck or is near death. Right?

What does this mean? Bewildering!
