02:47 PM ET 05.19 | New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will undergo a fourth surgical procedure to treat his left forearm injury on Monday, according to the Boston Herald. The team hopes this operation will finally end Gronkowski's ongoing battle with an infection that's affected him for months. Scheduled for Monday, the procedure could involve replacing the plate currently keeping his broken forearm in place. If all goes well, Gronkowsk will finally be free of infection and a 10-11 week recovery phase will begin.

Don't you have to not eat or get hammered for at least 24 hours before a surgery? How does he do that in Las Vegas?

Nothing to eat or drink after midnight the day before the procedure. That's what the surgeon told me when I went under the knife. Makes me think the surgery will not take place on Monday. Maybe next Monday.

Good point. This whole thing sounds like we're only getting part of the story. We'll hear the real deal next week some time.
