Gronkowski already had two previous surgeries on the forearm and developed an infection that needed surgery to fix. He broke his forearm on Nov. 18 in a game against the Indianapolis Colts and missed five games. He came back for the season finale but broke the arm again in the Jan. 13 divisional-round playoff game victory against the Houston Texans. Gronkowski is expected to be ready for training camp.
Gronkowski was criticized earlier this month when he was caught on video performing a wrestling move on a friend at a Las Vegas nightclub despite having the broken forearm in a cast.
