New England Patriots: Rob Gronkowski Underwent Ankle Surgery on Friday

Just under a week after the New England Patriots' Super Bowl XLVI loss to the New York Giants, Rob Gronkowski underwent surgery to repair his injured left ankle. 

NBC's ProFootballTalk confirms the surgery on Gronkowski's damaged ligaments in his left ankle was successful and that it's expected he'll be fully healthy for the start of organized team activities this offseason. 

Gronkowski injured his ankle late in the fourth quarter of the AFC Championship Game against the Baltimore Ravens and noticeably suffered in New England's Super Bowl loss as he snagged just two passes for 26 yards. 

By just watching the game, you could tell that Gronkowski was not his normal self. He struggled blocking as well as with his release off the line of scrimmage and with running crisp routes. 

Gronkowski turns 23 in May and will look to improve on his record-breaking 2011 season this upcoming year as the Patriots look to make another run at the Super Bowl.
