Report: Rob Gronkowski undergoes another surgery on left forearm

02.25.13 at 7:03 pm ET

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Field Yates, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski required surgery last week to address an infection in the left forearm that had already required a pair of surgeries. Schefter noted, however, that Gronkowski’s latest surgery is not expected to impact his availability for the 2013 preseason or regular season.

Gronkowski’s elbow infection was caught early enough that he is likely not miss any extended time and is expected to be for camp, tweeted Schefter.

Gronkowski broke his left forearm in November while blocking on a point-after attempt against the Colts. He missed the next five weeks, returned in the regular season finale and then suffered another fracture in the Patriots’ divisional playoff win against the Texans that required another procedure and ended his year.

In 11 games, Gronkowski, 23, caught 55 passes for 790 yards and 11 touchdowns.
