The surgery was performed in order to repair the high-ankle sprain that Gronkowski sustained in the AFC championship game against the Baltimore Ravens.
The Patriots tight end struggled to play through the injury during the Super Bowl loss against the New York Giants. In the 21-17 defeat, he had two catches for 26 yards. During the regular season, Gronkowski caught 90 passes for 1,327 yards and 17 touchdowns.
