After undergoing two surgeries to repair a broken arm during the regular season and NFL playoffs, All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski must undergo a third surgery due to an infection according to Dan Hanzus of NFL.com as of Feb. 25:
New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is having more trouble with his surgically repaired left arm.
NFL.com's Albert Breer reported Monday night, via a source, that Gronkowski recently underwent a procedure after he developed an infection in his elbow. This is his third surgery on the arm since November.
Despite missing the five of the last six games of the regular season, Gronkowski was still able to lead the Patriots in touchdown receptions with 11 and was able to earn Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors for the second straight year.
Although Gronkowski remains Tom Brady's favorite target in the end zone and is arguably the best tight end in the NFL, the controversial player might become a problem in terms of constant injury problems and questionable off-the-field activities.
