The Patriots’ Rob Gronkowski has the peskiest forearm ever, quite possibly. After breaking it during this past season, it apparently never healed properly, and caused Gronk to miss significant action during the season. Then, of course, it required surgery again after he re-injured it upon his return to the field.
According to the Boston Herald, Gronkowski needs another operation on that forearm again. That brings the count to four if you’re scoring at home.
Many have questioned his lifestyle because he’s something of a party boy who doesn’t always appear to have any regard for his injured arm. Now, I can’t say that his antics are harming his arm, but I can’t say it helps either.
It will be interesting to see if he’s ready for the start of the season.
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
