Rob Gronkowski left today's New England Patriots-Miami Dolphins game with an apparent injury. Here is the latest on the injury status of the All-Pro tight end.

Gronkowski, who was questionable heading into this afternoon's AFC East division contest, had to leave this afternoon's blowout against the Dolphins with an apparent lower-body injury.

The Patriots have provided an update on Gronk's status, saying the tight end is questionable to return.

"Injury update: Rob Gronkowski (ankle); return questionable," the Patriots announced.

The Patriots are having no difficulties with the Dolphins today, so it seems unlikely that New England would risk anything with Gronkowski here.

Gronkowski, 29, has dealt with several major injuries over the course of the season. He was feeling good heading into the 2018 season, though. Gronk had totaled 13 catches for 189 yards and 1 touchdown heading into today's game.

The star tight end had 4 catches for 44 yards against the Dolphins today. The addition of wide receiver Josh Gordon seemed to help Gronk, who had previously been getting double and triple-teamed by opposing teams with little threats on the outside.

Stay tuned for more updates on Gronkowski and his injury. The Patriots will likely have more news after the game.
