Rob Gronkowski‚Äôs ankle was heavily in focus prior to the Super Bowl and limited him severely during the game. As it turns out, the high-ankle sprain was damaged enough to require surgery.
According to Liz Mullen of Sports Business Journal, the Patriots Pro Bowl tight-end¬†had a successful arthroscopic surgery on his ankle Friday morning. His expected recovery time will be around 10 weeks.
The arthroscopic procedure¬†was done at Mass. General by team Dr. George Theodore, who has worked on Dustin Pedroia, Tom Brady, and Curt Schilling.
I was a little surprised to hear of Gronkowski’s surgery, but based on his performance at Indianapolis, it appeared the injury was worse than I initially thought. I have no worries moving forward and I am sure Gronkowski will have time to recover before his off-season workouts begin.
I’ll be sure to post more details when they are made available. Do¬†you have a Twitter account?¬†Be sure to follow me: @PatriotsHaven!
