It led me to wonder… how bad is his ankle really hurt?
Well, Gronk went under the knife Friday for some arthroscopic on his high-ankle sprain. Sources told WBZ-TV that it will take him 10 weeks to recover.
This season, he set an NFL record for touchdown catches by a tight end with 17 (he added an 18th touchdown on a “rush”), catching 90 balls in all for an NFL record (for a TE) 1,327 yards.
The 2010 second round pick is just 22, so he should be able to bounce back just fine for next season.
