Citing multiple sources, ESPN Boston reports Rob Gronkowski is still "a couple of weeks away" from a determination on whether he'll need a fourth surgery on his fractured, then infected left forearm.
The Pats used April as a "wait-and-see" month, and doctors will soon examine his arm to see if the infection has cleared. Gronkowski is participating in the club's offseason conditioning program and "looks great," according to one person who's seen him. Beat writer Mike Reiss confirms so far there have been "no unexpected setbacks." If Gronk needed the fourth arm surgery, multiple reports have indicated his Week 1 status would be jeopardized.
