Gronk reportedly has 3rd surgery in as many months


Rob Gronkowski knows a few things about getting surgery on his left arm.

ESPN's Adam Schefter and Field Yates reported the news Monday, noting that Gronkowski is expected to be good to go for training camp.

We'll see.

Gronkowski originally broke his forearm in November blocking on an extra point at the end of the Patriots' blowout win over the Indianapolis Colts and re-broke it in a victory over the Houston Texans in the team's first playoff game.

The second-year tight end injured his ankle at the end of the 2011 season, and despite being arguably the best tight end in the NFL, seems to be as injury prone as anyone as of late.
