New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski sat out Thursday’s practice — the team’s last workout before its playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Gronkowski also missed Tuesday’s practice with the knee injury that he sustained against the Denver Broncos on Nov. 29. He practiced on Wednesday, but was listed on the injury report as a "limited" participant.

The Pro Bowl tight end was the team’s leading receiver this season, with 72 catches for 1,176 yards and 11 touchdowns.

ESPN reported that Gronkowski received treatment at the hospital on his knee.

Gronk’s knee and back were cited on Thursday’s practice report, and his knee is a new issue.
