Agent: Gronk's ACL surgery 'went very well'
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski underwent surgery on his torn right ACL on Thursday, his agent said.
Noted orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews performed the procedure.
“Dr. Andrews said it went very well,” agent Drew Rosenhaus tweeted.
Gronkowski tore both his ACL and MCL in a game against the Cleveland Browns on Dec. 8. Surgery on the ACL was delayed to allow time for the MCL to heal.
The surgery gives Gronkowski a 6 1/2-month window until the projected start of 2014 training camp in late July.
