Rob Gronkowski (broken left forearm) will be sidelined 4-8 weeks after undergoing surgery Monday.

Gronk is expected to be back in much closer to four weeks than eight weeks, but in a worst-case scenario, he'd be dicey for a potential AFC Championship Game appearance. Gronk played through a high-ankle sprain just two weeks after the fact in last season's Super Bowl, and should be ready for the playoffs, if not Week 16 or 17.
