New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski may be able to avoid a fourth operation on his fractured forearm, according to reports.

It has been reported that Rob Gronkowski may be able to avoid undergoing a fourth operation on his fractured forearm.

It had been expected that the New England Patriots tight end would need more surgery to repair his arm, making him a doubt for the start of the 2013 NFL season.

However, ESPN Boston reports that the 23-year-old has "looked great" during the team's off-season workouts and could avoid a further operation.

Gronkowski initially injured his arm during a game against the Indianapolis Colts in November, before re-breaking the bone in a playoff game against the Houston Texans.
