09:08 AM ET 06.15 | Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has definitively known for two weeks that he would need back surgery this summer. Now, he can begin preparing himself for his latest trip to the operating room. Gronkowski will undergo back surgery Tuesday, according to reports. Dr. Robert Watkins will conduct the procedure in California. Watkins operated on Gronkowski's back in 2009, recently repaired Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul's back and is considered one of the best in the field. The Herald has reported since last month that back surgery would keep Gronkowski out until late September. However, it's possible the timeline could fluctuate depending on Gronkowski's rehabilitation program.

Tebow just might be quarterbacking about the time Gronk will be ready!

Are we getting to the point of wondering if Gronk will ever play again?

Gronk's in big trouble.
