NFL Knee Injuries Outweigh Concussions, But That's Not A Bad Thing
Oddly enough, it seems some NFL players are willing to risk their heads in favor of saving their knees.By Matt Moreno | November 30, 2015
The New England Patriots lost a big offensive weapon after tight end Rob Gronkowski exited Sunday's game late in the fourth quarter with a knee injury. He had to be carted off the field, but reports say he avoided a season-ending injury.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said after the game the hit wasn't dirty, but did take a jab at the NFL's rules.
"I hate to see it, but it's really the only way for defenders to hit now. I bet if you asked a lot of players they'd probably rather you go high than low. You go low, that's what happens," Brady said.
