Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski could miss a part of training camp as NFL.com reported Wednesday that he will require back surgery. Surgery is set for mid-June and will be performed by Dr. Robert Watkins, according to the report.

Gronkowski recently underwent a fourth surgery on his left forearm which caused him to miss a chunk of the Patriots 2012 regular season schedule as well as the AFC Championship Game against Baltimore.
