Dr. James Andrews successfully repaired Rob Gronkowski’s torn ACL on Thursday. According to his agent Drew Rosenhaus, the procedure went “very well.” Andrews is world renowned for his success rate in surgically repairing knee ligaments.
The timetable for Gronk’s return is 6-8 months, meaning if his rehab goes remarkably well a pre-season return could be attainable. Though it’s likely he’ll return some time early in the regular season next year. Whatever the case may be, Gronk certainly has a lot of hard work ahead.
The healing process has officially begun and that’s fantastic news for the Patriots. New England fans can now begin to look forward to seeing Gronk grace the gridiron once again.
