    I'm not a doctor and I didn't even stay at a Holiday Inn Express. I'm not even sure Amendola has a torn adductor. That said, here's an article on torn adductor tendons and the prognosis for recovery without surgery.

    I was surprised to see that these doctors didn't think surgery contributed all that much to post-recovery level of play, although it's pretty hard to compare based on such a small sample set and who knows what their bias was (team doctors want players back on the field - surgeons want surgery).

    They give a recovery time of 3 to 9 weeks.

    While it didnt prove true for Gronk one could assume that his increasing work load in practice since the injury could be a sign that it will lie on the shorter end.
