Rob Gronkowski recently had surgery to repair his broken left forearm, and rumors have been circulating that it didn’t quite go as planned. The tight end reportedly has a “stubborn” infection that would require another surgery keep Gronkowski off the field for the first few games of the season.
But Gronkowski’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said that there are no plans for another surgery yet.
Rosenhaus said that the rumors about Gronkowski missing the start of the season were “way off.”
Rosenhaus said: “That type of speculation is way off. No determinations have been made … I’m not sure what’s going to happen. There’s no surgery scheduled, and we’re not sure he’s going to need one.”
According to NFL.com, Gronkowski is currently taking antibiotics to clear up the infection. The New England Patriots tight end is reportedly nearing the end of his six-week treatment cycle so Patriots fans should find out soon whether or not Gronk will have to undergo another surgery.
Patriots fans have been a little upset with Gronkowski this off-season. The tight end will be missing off-season training for the second time in a row and many people have criticized the NFL player for how he’s been treating his body during his recovery. The tight end was spotted wrestling, while in his cast, during a drunken trip to Las Vegas that involved a $9,000 tab. Gronkowski apologized, kind of, for the incident.
On report that Gronk could miss start of season, Rosenhaus said “that type of speculation is way off. No determinations have been made”
