New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski underwent surgery last week for an infection in same forearm he re-broke in a playoff game against the Houston Texans, reports 

Gronkowski already had two previous surgeries on the forearm and developed an infection that needed surgery to fix. He broke his forearm on Nov. 18 in a game against the Indianapolis Colts and missed five games. He came back for the season finale but broke the arm again in the Jan. 13 divisional-round playoff game victory against the Houston Texans. Gronkowski is expected to be ready for training camp.

Gronkowski was criticized earlier this month when he was caught on video performing a wrestling move on a friend at a Las Vegas nightclub despite having the broken forearm in a cast.
