Patriots | Rob Gronkowski could need back surgery
New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (forearm, back) could require surgery on his back for a disc issue he has been dealing with. Gronkowski recently underwent an MRI, and if he is forced to have the surgery, could be ready in the same amount of time it would take to recover from the arm issue.
Fantasy Tip: Another red flag for the Patriots tight end. Add the back issues to the forearm issues, and the idea that when healthy, he would likely split looks with Aaron Hernandez, and it all leads to dropping Gronkowski on your draft board. If healthy, he is obviously still a TE1, but his health is a big question mark at this point.
