Jan. 14 (Bloomberg) -- The New England Patriots will be without Rob Gronkowski for the rest of the playoffs after their All-Pro tight end broke his left forearm again, NFL.com said, citing an unidentified person familiar with the injury.

Gronkowski, who had a team-leading 11 touchdown receptions this season, will require surgery, NFL.com reported. He previously broke his forearm on Nov. 18 and missed five games before returning for the regular-season finale on Dec. 30.

Gronkowski, 23, was injured when he landed hard while trying to catch a pass during yesterday’s 41-28 playoff win against the Houston Texans. The Patriots next host the Baltimore Ravens in the Jan. 20 American Football Conference championship game, with the winner advancing to the Super Bowl.

Gronkowski has been one of quarterback Tom Brady’s favorite targets since entering the National Football League in 2010, scoring 38 touchdowns in 43 regular-season games. He had 55 catches for 790 yards in 11 games this season.
