Shortly after the Philadelphia Eagles had successfully defeated the Minnesota Vikings 38-7 in the NFC Championship Game, the matchup in Super Bowl LII between the Eagles and the New England Patriots was set.

Rob Gronkowski walks off the field after an injury in the second quarter during the AFC Championship Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Gillette Stadium on January 21, 2018 in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

The team's injury report released Wednesday was the first time the Patriots acknowledged that Gronkowski suffered a concussion in the 24-20 comeback victory over the Jaguars.

While New England got the win in that game, it came at a price, with All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski getting knocked out of the game with a concussion.




For the Super Bowl winners, that amounts to a total bonus of $181,000 per player over three games.

Gronkowski and defensive lineman Deatrich Wise were in uniform and participated in the team stretching period that is open to reporters. Winning five out of the seven presented Super Bowl opportunities, the Patriots seek their sixth title this Sunday.
