BOSTON (CBS) — Rob Gronkowski is once again listed as questionable for the Patriots.
Gronkowski had the same listing last week, an upgrade from “doubtful,” which was his status for the first two games of the season.
The tight end has yet to play in a game this season as he recovers from multiple surgeries which he’s undergone since last season. Some reports have said it’s been his arm that has been the cause for the delay in getting back into game action, but whether it’s his back or his arm, the end result has been zero playing time through three weeks.
The team decided to remove Gronkowski from the physically unable to perform list prior to the start of the season, a move that required Gronkowski to take up a roster spot but allowed him to return before Week 7.
Danny Amendola was also on the injury report again, listed as questionable as well. He continues to rehab from a groin injury and isn’t expected to play.
Cornerback Kyle Arrington, running back Brandon Bolden, and tackle Sebastian Vollmer were also among the eight players listed as questionable.
Jerod Mayo, Zach Sudfeld and Vince Wilfork were all listed as probable.
For the Falcons, wide receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White as well as cornerback Asante Samuel were all listed as questionable. Running back Steven Jackson is out, as expected, with a hamstring injury.
Special teams captain Matthew Slater was ruled out, as he recovers from wrist surgery two weeks ago.
