The injury that forced Rob Gronkowski to come out of the New England Patriots’ joint practice with the Chicago Bears on Monday is not serious, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
However, Jeff Howe of the Boston Heraldreports Gronkowski did not report to practice on Tuesday.
Gronkowski seemed to tweak a lower body muscle while attempting to catch a pass from Tom Brady during seven-on-seven drills. He walked to the sideline and met with the training staff, before eventually going to the locker room.
The injury is the second for Gronkowski this off-season, after he suffered a pectoral issue earlier this off-season.
Gronkowski was named first-team All-Pro for the fourth time last season, recording 72 catches for 1,176 yards and 11 touchdowns.
