New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft indicated on Tuesday May 21 that doctors are feeling positive about the outcome of Rob Gronkowski’s latest operation, after the tight end underwent his fourth consecutive forearm surgery on Monday.
Speaking to reporters at Tuesday’s NFL owners meeting in Boston, Kraft said that he has been told that Gronkowski’s surgery went as well as doctors and the team could have hoped.
The powerful tight end, who is an offensive force for the Patriots along with quarterback Tom Brady, among others, underwent his surgery on his right forearm, which he broke and re-injured during this past season.
Gronkowski had the metal plates in his arm replaced on Monday May 20. A lingering infection, according to the tight end’s doctors, has now been entirely cleared from the area.
Kraft said that he is hopeful that “Gronk,” who reportedly also needs back surgery, will be available for the Patriots season opener this year.
The Patriots signed “Gronk” to an extension last off-season that will keep him with the team through the 2019 season.
