According to the Boston Herald, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will undergo a fourth surgery on his forearm to remove the plate that’s currently securing the broken bone in his forearm.
This surgery has to happen, but there’s also a chance Gronk may have to undergo a fifth operation, per the Herald.
If tests show the infection has been completely flushed out, the plate will be replaced, and the recovery process begins. If there are still signs of infection, that won’t happen.
That’s a scenario no one wants to contemplate. Ultimately, Gronkowski would need more surgery and his participation for the start of the season and perhaps beyond would be in jeopardy.
But right now, doctors are giving it a little more time in hopes that when they do decide to go in to replace the plate, which should be relatively soon given the 11-week recovery period, the infection will finally be gone.
