Pats Beat: TE Rob Gronkowski's injury doesn't appear serious

Whatever forced Rob Gronkowski out of Monday's joint practice between the Patriots and Bears does not appear to be a serious injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

No details on Gronkowski's situation have emerged, but it's possible that he simply felt the early signs of a muscle cramp. Temperatures reached the 90s Monday, and Gronk has many muscles to cramp.

In all likelihood, Gronk will sit in the preseason, as will Julian Edelman.

Fantasy Impact:
