Rob Gronkowski broke forearm in new spot

According to a team source, tight end Rob Gronkowski Sunday landed on the end of the plate that was protecting the inside of the left forearm he fractured Nov. 18, breaking the forearm in a new spot.

The source also said Gronkowski, who had season-ending surgery Monday, was completely healed from the original fracture and it took a perfect storm for the new break to occur. Plates generally are kept in for 12-18 months, and sometimes indefinitely.
