This is a dark day for all of us. The Bro-iest NFL superstar to ever step onto a football field is hurting this morning – and not because he was out raging.
Gronkowski, who suffered a broken left forearm in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s win over the Colts, will undergo surgery Monday, a league source said.
While it is unclear how long at this point how long he will be sidelined, it is not season-ending, the source said.
Gronkowski was blocking on the final extra point of the Patriots’ 59-24 win when cornerback Marshay Green rushed inside Gronkowski and his arm crumpled. As Gronkowski left the field after the play, the arm just hung at his side. A few minutes later he walked off the field and to the locker room with team doctor Thomas Gill.
