Rob Gronkowski will likely miss some regular season games

Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald seems to feel like Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will miss some regular season games after undergoing forearm surgery this offseason and now getting ready to have his back operated on.

Howe saw Gronk at a recent charity event.

Gronkowski still was wearing a protective sleeve on his left arm, a remnant from a fourth surgery that was needed to replace a plate to heal a broken bone. He is also getting ready for a back procedure that will likely force him to miss regular-season games.
