New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski on Tuesday expressed frustration over how inconsistently offensive pass interference penalties are officiated. Gronkowski was penalized for OPI in Sunday’s loss to the Carolina Panthers in what coach Bill Belichick later said was a tough call.
If the consistency was there 100 percent, then I’d be cool with whatever it is, Gronkowski said. One week, we’re told we can play, it really isn’t going to be called, they can hold and you can slap off their hands. Then the next week, if you touch the guy, it’s a PI. I just wish I knew the consistency, so I can base my game off and practice and be prepared for the game and know the rules going in from week to week.

This isn’t the first time Worrilow has dealt with injuries in his left knee. In 2015, he had to have his left knee drained after a game against Carolina and practiced on a limited basis after that.
Worrilow signed with Detroit in the offseason and has been a rotational linebacker with the Lions. After Jarrad Davis missed the past two weeks with a concussion and neck injury, Worrilow has played more defensive packages. He started both games for Detroit in Davis’ absence and has six tackles.
