Gronkowski surgery follow-up
ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter tweeted the following this afternoon: "On Rob Gronkowski's surgery, doctors believe the forearm infection is gone, per source. They put the new plates in. Good news for Gronk."
Gronkowski underwent the fourth surgery on his left forearm this afternoon at Massachusetts General Hospital.
The estimated timetable for recovery is around 10 weeks, assuming there are no setbacks.
The forearm surgery may not be the only procedure Gronkowski has this offseason. He will also visit noted spine specialist Robert Watkins in California in three to four weeks to decide whether he needs back surgery, a source told Schefter.
Gronkwoski recently had an MRI on his back to further inspect a disk injury he sustained last season.
