Patriots owner Robert Kraft said Tuesday that the information team officials got back on Rob Gronkowski’s surgery was “as good a report as we could have hoped for.”
Gronkowski underwent a fourth surgery on his left forearm Monday afternoon at Massachusetts General Hospital to again replace the plate that was initially placed in his arm after his first break, last Nov. 18, and then was redone in January, after a second break in the playoffs.
“The report we got was very positive,” Kraft said at the NFL owners meetings at the Hyatt Harborside in East Boston. “I’ve learned in the medical area you can’t always predict everything, but it came out positive.
“I’m not a medical person, and things change day to day, but we were told it was as good a report as we could have hoped for.”
Gronkowski was one of many current and former Patriots players and coaches who went with Kraft to Newtown, Conn., Saturday to bring the organization’s “Football for You” program to that devastated town in an effort to help lift its spirits.
