Report: Rob Gronkowski Back Surgery Completed and Successful

Jim Rogash

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski underwent back surgery today, and early indications are that the procedure was successful.

New England Patriots tight end underwent what is intended to be his final surgery of the offseason today. Mike Wilkening of ProFootballTalk.com reports that the procedure, which was on his back, has been completed and was deemed successful:

Surgery on Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski's back has concluded, a source told PFT's Mike Florio on Tuesday.

It is believed the surgery, conducted Tuesday, was successful, the source told PFT.

At present, it's not yet certain when Gronkowski - one of the game's top all-around performers at his position - will again be ready to play. The Pro Bowl tight end was bothered by a forearm injury /infection late in the 2012 campaign and into this offseason before the back issue became a primary concern.

Of course, I really can't remember the last time a surgery was not declared successful. So for now, we'll play the wait and see approach and will have more once a timetable is set for his return to the field.
