BOSTON (CBS) – Chances are Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski won’t play in their season opener Sunday in Buffalo, but it’s looking good for receiver Danny Amendola.

Amendola was a full participant at practice on Friday and is listed as “probable” on New England’s injury report, making it very likely he will make his Patriots’ debut against the Bills.

Gronkowski, who is still recovering from an offseason filled with arm and back surgeries, is listed as “doubtful,” though he is still expected to travel with the team. The tight end is from Buffalo though, so this is likely just a free trip home for Gronkowski.

Running back Brandon Bolden (knee), receiver Aaron Dobson (hamstring), defensive back Nate Ebner (ankle), and rookie defensive back Duron Harmon (hamstring) were all limited again at Friday’s practice session and each are listed as “questionable,” giving them a 50-50 chance of playing on Sunday.

Offensive lineman Will Svitek is the only Patriot declared out for Sunday’s game after missing practice this week with a knee injury.

Buffalo corner Stephen Gilmore, kicker Dustin Hopkins and center Doug Legursky are all out for the Bills, with safety Jarius Byrd “doubtful” with a foot injury.

Rookie quarterback EJ Manuel, who was named Buffalo’s starting QB earlier this week, is “probable” with a knee injury.
