The Patriots have been holding their breath about tight end Rob Gronkowski, wondering if he will have to have a fourth surgery on his left forearm or not.

The last month has been more of a “wait-and-see” period, with Gronkowski essentially buying more time for doctors to determine if the infection has cleared.

Gronkowski has been working in the Patriots’ offseason program, and for what it’s worth, one opinion from someone who has seen him is that he “looks great.” A month ago, surgery was seen as “very likely” but there has always remained a chance that it could be avoided.

At this point, there have been no unexpected setbacks; however, as Gronkowski has already learned, things can always change quickly.
