There’s still a chance Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski won’t need to undergo back surgery. But if he does, it will be a minor procedure, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Rob Gronkowski's back issue considered minor, per source. If he needs surgery it'd be during time frame that he'd be out with arm surgery.

It’s makes me laugh when people consider any type of surgery is minor. I don’t buy that at all. Surgery is never a good thing.
The fact of the matter is that the Pats should be concerned that their young start tight end is falling apart.
