Rob Gronkowski Has Sugery on Forearm
On Sunday everything seemed to be going quite well for the New England Patriots in their 59-24 route of the Indianapolis Colts; they were passing the ball exceptionally, running the ball well, stopping both the run as well as pass frequently on defense and getting a quality performance out of their special teams. The Pats seemed to be a fine oiled machine and then star tight end Rob Gronkowski left the game with 3:55 remaining in the contest due to an arm injury.
Following the game, it was announced that Gronkowski had broken his forearm and would have surgery to repair the injury in a timely manner. On Monday, Gronkowski underwent the necessary surgery to repair the broken bone and is expected to miss anywhere from four to six weeks while recovering and rehabbing from both the injury and surgery.
The Patriots could be in a bit of a pickle now with Gronkowski out for a while, as the tight end has been on the field for 94.1 of the Patriots offensive plays, which ranks first on the team for skill players. Additionally, fellow star tight end Aaron Hernandez also dealing with his own injury (ankle) which has kept him out of the lineup for six games this season. So far this season, Gronkowski has hauled in 53 receptions for 748 yards and 10 touchdowns through the teams first 10 games, now they may be without his services for the remainder of the regular season.
While out recovering Gronkowski will be replaced in the Pats lineup by veterans Visanthe Shiancoe and Daniel Fells at the tight end position.
