Crunch Time


has surgery

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski underwent a fourth surgery on his broken left forearm Monday. Gronkowski had to undergo a fourth surgery due to an infection that has not gone away on the injured forearm.

The All Pro tight end broke the arm in a November game against the Indianapolis Colts while blocking on an extra point. He returned late in the season only to re-injure the arm diving for in a January playoff game against the Houston Texans.

The surgery could keep Gronkowski on the sidelines through the start of Patriots training camp, which starts in late July. To make matters worse he may also need surgery on a bulging disk in his back.

Talking Papi

David Ortiz’s two-homer game on Saturday night was an eventful one. It was the 38th two-homer night for Ortiz as a member of the Red Sox, passing Ted Williams at 37 for most multi-homer games in team history. Also his 38 multi-homer games since 2003 are second-best in the big leagues behind Albert Pujols (44).

Williams arrested

Celtics guard Terrance Williams was arrested on Sunday after he allegedly pulled a handgun on the mother of his 10 year old son. He is facing assault charges.

Williams signed a 10-day contract with the Celtics in February and later earned a multi-year contract with the team although that deal is not guaranteed. In 24 games this season he averaged 4.6 points in 13 minutes per game off the bench.

Making the trip

Injured Bruins defensemen Dennis Seidenberg and Wade Redden will be making the trip with the team to New York this week for games three and four of the Eastern Conference semifinals. Their playing status, however, is still up in the air.
