Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski had arthroscopic surgery on his injured left ankle today, the Globe has confirmed.

Gronkowski underwent surgery earlier today on his left ankle to repair multiple torn ligaments, a team source confirmed. Orthopedic surgeon Dr. George Theodore performed the operation at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Liz Mullen of the Sports Business Journal first reported Gronkowski had ankle surgery.

Gronkowski suffered a high ankle sprain in the AFC Championship game. He played in the Super Bowl, but was limited to two receptions for 26 yards.
