Update: ” With Rob & Gordy in Pensacola. Good news the surgery is over. Dr Andrews said it went very well.” This was tweeted out earlier on Thursday by Gronkowski’s agent Drew Rosenhaus.
According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is set to have surgery on his torn ACL this Thursday January 9th.
Quite a bit of time has elapsed since the injury that was sustained on December 8th and fans may be wondering why it has taken this long for Gronk to go under the knife. Albert Breer was a guest on 98.5 The Sports Hub and told Gresh and Zo that the reason was they were waiting for Gronkowski’s MCL to heal and for swelling to go down.
Since that was the case, this means Gronkowski’s MCL must be completely healed and now it’s about making the ACL right. Talking with professionals, it seems most feel that Gronkowski, in a perfect situation, would be ready to go by training camp of next season. Problem being that Gronk hasn’t had the smoothest time when healing from surgeries so only time will tell.
