Perhaps Rob Gronkowski's on-going forearm issue is perhaps about to come to an end.

Gronkowski underwent the fourth procedure on the forearm on Monday, and ESPN reports that the infection that plagued the New England Patriots tight end appears to be gone. A new plate was inserted into the forearm, and presuming there are no further setbacks, Gronkowski should be ready to return in about two and a half months.
