Patriots' Rob Gronkowski May Need Fourth Surgery
(FOXBORO, Ma.) -- After undergoing his third surgery on his broken left forearm in February, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will need a fourth surgery, according to the Boston Herald.
The Herald reports that according to a source familiar with the case, Gronkowski is going to need a fourth operation to change the plate that’s securing the broken bone in the forearm.
Gronkowski broke his forearm during Week 11 and reinjured it during the Patriots playoff win over Houston in January.
New England's season opener is on Sept. 8 against the Bills.
