Gronkowski has been playing at a really high level this season. He was one of the most-productive tight ends in the league during the season’s first two weeks.
The Buccaneers will need him to stay healthy in order to make a deep run moving forward. Thankfully, Gronk appeared to avoid major injury on Sunday.
