Report: Gronkowski had third surgery

"The infection was caught early enough that Gronkowski is not expected to miss any extended time, according to those familiar with the surgery," ESPN reports.
Gronkowski - who was out of a cast and optimistic in a recent interview with Patriots Today on Patriots.com -- is still expected to be ready for training camp.
This third surgery could also be the reason that Gronkowski pulled out of a previous commitment to work the red carpet at the Oscars as a correspondent for the Rich Eisen Podcast on NFL.com.
