Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski’s Infection Clears After Fourth Arm Surgery
New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski’s infection cleared up after a fourth surgery on his left arm, according to multiple reports.
NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport and Pro Football Talk’s Mike Wilkening both reported, citing league sources, that doctors were able to determine that the infection in Gronkowski’s arm is gone and that no further surgery on his arm is planned. Gronkowski initially suffered the arm injury last November and had been plagued by recurring problems ever since.
The surgeries aren’t yet over for Gronkowski, however. He is expected to need back surgery this offseason to address chronic back pain. Gronkowski recently underwent an MRI to examine a previously injured disk in his back that was bothering him last season, which revealed damage to a different disk.
