Patriots | Doctors believe Rob Gronkowski's infection cleared

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (forearm, back) underwent surgery Monday, May 20, to replace the plate in his forearm. The doctors believe the infection in his forearm has cleared.

Fantasy Tip: It would be good news for Gronkowski if the infection is cleared because he would not have to undergo a fifth surgery on the forearm. There is a chance he will have to miss some time during training camp because of his recovery, but he could be ready for the start of the season if he does not need the fifth surgery. Gronkowski would be a No. 1 tight end if he is healthy, but owners should consider a strong No. 2 tight end in case Gronkowski has to miss time.
