Rob Gronkowski is back on the operating table today.
 
The tight end who made his NFL reputation in part by getting open has now spent the better part of the past seven months getting opened.
 
It’s a back surgery to be performed by Dr. Robert Watkins that’s taking place Tuesday. Watkins performed a back surgery on Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul at Marina Del Rey Hospital in California recently.
 
Pierre-Paul is projected to be back on the same 12-week timetable that’s been bandied about for Gronkowski.
 
We’ll keep you posted on what we hear regarding the fifth surgery for Gronk since he broke his forearm last November.
