Rob Gronkowski is spending a lot of quality time with his surgeon. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this week that New England Patriots tight end Gronkowski underwent this third arm surgery last week for an infection. Gronkowski’s surgery was confirmed by a team source, according to a Feb. 25 BostonGlobe.com report.
This is reportedly the athlete’s third arm surgery since November, and there is no word on whether this recent surgery stems from his shirtless wrestling dance moves at his $9,000 tab Super Bowl 2013 party in Las Vegas.
According to the Boston Globe, Gronkowski broke his forearm against the Colts last November, and then two weeks later, re-broke the same forearm while playing against Houston, in what doctors called a “freak occurrence.” This time, the infection was reportedly caught early enough and Gronkowsky is not expected to miss “any extended time.” He is expected to be at the Patriots training camp when it starts.
When it comes to surgeries stemming from injuries, Gronkowski is catching up to Peyton Manning’s neck, reports National Football Post’s Terry McCormick, who noted that this recent surgery puts the player one less surgery from Manning’s total.
