Foxboro, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - The New England Patriots orchestrated their third consecutive come-from-behind win, but this one was completed without Rob Gronkowski.

The star tight end was carted off the field in the third quarter of Sunday's wild 27-26 victory over Cleveland after suffering what is believed to be a torn ACL.

Gronkowski caught a pass from Tom Brady up the seam before his right knee absorbed the brunt of a hit by defensive back T.J. Ward. After being tended to by medical personnel, Gronkowski was helped onto a cart. He is scheduled to have an MRI on Monday to confirm the injury.

The Patriots were trailing 12-0 when Gronkowski got hurt.

Gronkowski missed the first six games of this season while recovering from offseason back and forearm surgeries.
