Rob Gronkowski, formerly known for his play on the football field but now recognized for his dance moves, reportedly had arthroscopic surgery on his ankle Friday morning.
The second-year tight end suffered a high ankle sprain in the Patriots' AFC Championship victory over the Ravens three weeks ago, though he still played in last Sunday's Super Bowl loss to the Giants.
Liz Mullen of the Sports Business Journal reported the surgery earlier today, and multiple media sources confirmed it. Gronkowski suffered ligament damage in the ankle, which needed repair.
Gronkowski caught 17 touchdowns passes this season and grabbed three more in the Patriots' Divisional Round victory over the Broncos.
