New England Patriots special teams ace Matthew Slater said tight end Rob Gronkowski is in "pretty good spirits" after suffering a head injury Sunday during the team's 24-20 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship Game.

Mike Reiss of passed along the remarks from Slater on Tuesday and noted the Pats have not confirmed the ailment as a concussion.

Gronkowski took a helmet-to-helmet hit from Jags defensive back Barry Church late in the second quarter of the AFC title game. Church received a 15-yard penalty for unnecessary roughness on the play, and the star tight end didn't return for the second half.

When the Patriots announced he was out for the remainder of the game following evaluation, they listed it as a head injury, not a concussion.

It's an important distinction because a concussion would force Gronkowski to complete the NFL's updated protocol in order to play in the Super Bowl against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The team will release its first injury report Wednesday, which could shed more light on the situation.

New England stormed back from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter on the strength of a pair of touchdown passes from Tom Brady to Danny Amendola.

OddsShark noted the Patriots are listed as early five-point Super Bowl favorites against the Eagles. Gronkowski's status could impact the final line.

Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is so excited about the prospect of working with Jon Gruden that he doesn't want his new head coach to take it easy on him.  

During an appearance on the Raiders Insider Podcast, via NBC Sports Bay Area's Scott Bair, Carr believes Gruden will push him to become the best player he can be.

"I want him to be tough on me," he said. "For anyone who thinks I want him to be a different way has no clue about me or how I play football or how I prepare to play this game. I don't need to tell stories about how I prepare or manage myself."

Carr also said he and Gruden will "get along great" as they prepare for their first season together. 

The Raiders hired Gruden this month to replace Jack Del Rio after finishing 6-10 in 2017. This will be Gruden's first head coaching job since he was fired by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers following the 2008 season. 

Coming off an MVP-caliber performance in 2016 with 3,937 yards, 28 touchdowns and a 63.8 completion percentage, Carr took a step back last season. He tied his career high with 13 interceptions, and his 233.1 passing yards per game was his fewest since 2014. 


Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James was tight-lipped Tuesday regarding a team meeting that reportedly occurred prior to Monday's practice.

When asked about the meeting, James would only say, "I don't want to talk about it," according to Tom Withers of the Associated Press.'s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Monday the meeting was "loud and intense" and that multiple players questioned the authenticity of an illness that caused Kevin Love to leave Saturday's 148-124 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
