Source: Gronkowski has surgery on arm

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski underwent surgery on his broken forearm Monday, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The Patriots are uncertain exactly how long he will be out, but one source said he expects Gronkowski to miss "probably a few weeks." Before the surgery, an report cited Gronkowski as telling people he would be out four to six weeks.

Gronkowski broke his forearm at the end of the team's 59-24 rout of the Colts, suffering the injury on the Patriots' final extra point with 3:55 remaining in the fourth quarter, a source said.

Asked for an update Monday on Gronkowski, coach Bill Belichick said, "I don't really have anything. I know that our medical people are looking at all the players today when they come in, trying to assess their situation, like we always do on Monday. I'll catch up with them as they've had a chance (to gather that information)."

When a reporter pressed Belichick on why Gronkowski was still playing special teams late in the fourth quarter, especially since he has been listed as questionable on the injury report, Belichick provided his thinking.

"Its one of his roles and jobs at the game," he answered, before touching on his view on the importance of protection on the field-goal unit. "Whoever does it, it's very important."

X-rays after the game revealed Gronkowski's broken forearm.

"I knew he had gotten injured, but I obviously didn't know the extent," quarterback Tom Brady said on his weekly appearance on WEEI sports radio in Boston. "But he's such a great player, it sucks that he gets hurt, but it's part of this game. He's got to do his best to get back as soon as possible, and we've got to go out there and win some games without him."

Isn't Hernandez out, too? Who's their other TE? The wide receivers are going to need to step it up more now. I'm looking at you, Brandon Lloyd. Welker will be good as always.
