BOSTON (CAP) - New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has become the NFL's first bionic player following an experimental surgical procedure after breaking his left arm during a game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Doctors say the arm now has the equivalent strength of a bulldozer.
"Gentlemen, doctors told me they could rebuild him because they have the technology," coach Bill Belichick said during a mid-afternoon conference call. "We're not sure when Gronk will return, but when he does, he'll be better than he was before.
"Better. Stronger. Faster," added Belichick.
CAP News sources inside the hospital said Gronkowski also received two bionic legs, allowing him to run at tremendous speed and make great leaps. In addition, his left eye was swapped out for a bionic one with a 20.2:1 zoom lens, an infrared filter, and the ability to view objects thrown too fast for the normal eye to see.
