FOXBOROUGH — Like just about every other New England sports fan, the Patriots saw what happened to Gordon Hayward in the Celtics’ season opener against the Cavs on Tuesday night. And to a man, they all offered words of support for the Boston forward in the wake of his horrific injury.

Rob Gronkowski is a guy who knows something about serious injuries and the process of rehab. That’s why he can speak with some depth on the subject. On Wednesday, the tight end said he wishes Hayward “nothing but wellness” going forward.
