    So Rodney can settle down now, since Gronk won't be dancing for a bit.

    Hell, they probably had to use a scope the size of an oil rig drill just to puncture his skin...

    If it was at MGH, that explains him being at the Garden last night and not on a beach somewhere warm.

    A few nurses walked out of the hospital this morning looking like they just rode a horse ... this explains it.

    What a shame that this player was not at full throttle for the super bowl.

    Thank Pollard for yet another injury to one of our foremost players...

    Admittedly, the Welker one was a fluke with Pollard being in the vicinity, but I would argue it was his aura that induced that injury...

    Christopher Price has an update:
    It Is What It Is » Carroll: Gronkowski looking at a four-to-six week recovery time after ankle surgery


    In the wake of his arthroscopic surgery Friday morning at Massachusetts General Hospital on his injured left ankle, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski should be OK to participate in the majority of offseason workout programs.

    Noted sports injury expert Will Carroll of SI.com said there’s reason to believe New England is looking at a four-to-six week recovery time for their big tight end, which should allow him to be ready by mid-April and the start of offseason minicamps.

    “He just had it cleaned out, from what I understand,” Carroll said. “I think that the fact they just went in and cleaned it out is a big positive. He’s got plenty of time to get back, even if it had been more serious.”​


    So much for the doom and gloomers from a week ago declaring that he wouldn't be able to play in 2012 if he played last Sunday.

    Gronk performed the surgery on himself. It was done at the hospital simply to ensure he was working in a sterile environment.

    Physically, he'd be a great next "Terminator" except that his happy go lucky fun loving personality seems irrepressible. Can't have a killer bot partying hearty.

    and I invoke the rule of "three". So no matter when we play him next, we won't have any injured players in his area.
