Detroit Lions linebacker Paul Worrilow suffered a sprained left MCL during Sunday’s win over Minnesota, a source confirmed to ESPN.
Not many tearms have made the playoffs with a low-ranked offense, but with their stellar defense, the Lions may be a team that could pull it off.
The source added Worrilow is likely to miss at least this week’s game against the Carolina Panthers and then go from there.
Belichick has noted Gronkowski’s work in recent years in trying to avoid offensive pass interference penalties, most recently during a Monday interview on sports radio WEEI, when he said, Rob and I have talked about that situation … I think he really tries to do what is legal and tries not to put himself in a situation where they can call him. He doesn’t push off. He doesn’t try to create space. He tries to defend himself, and that is what he’s taught to do.
Meanwhile, Gronkowski said Belichick gives the players a feel for tendencies of each officiating crew, which he said is super helpful. At the same time, Gronkowski complimented officials for doing a tremendous job while noting the difficulty of their work.
It’s a tough job out there, just like us players, he said.

I can go full speed, linebacker is ready for me, boom, we bump, it’s just straight-up football. Sometimes I feel like the game of football can get taken away. There is definitely physical [play] that is involved in getting open sometimes.
