Gronko Refutes Report That Claims Spinal Condition

Reports surfaced late Wednesday evening that former Arizona tight end Rob Gronkowski is suffering from spinal stenosis, a potentially career-threatening condition.

Gronkowski denied reports in a phone interview with the Arizona Daily Wildcat.

“That’s news to me,” Gronkowski said. “I haven’t heard that.”

The news originated from NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock and quickly spread across the Internet.

Spinal stenosis, according to, is a narrowing of one or more areas in the spine that can put pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerves at the level of compression. It most commonly occurs in the neck or lower back and can cause numbness in the extremities, neck and shoulder pain and cramping in the legs.

Gronkowski insisted that he is completely healed.

“My back is 100 percent,” he said. “I’m still doing my pro day on (March) 27th.”
