Patriots Injury Report: Ridley Out; Gronk, Amendola Questionable
BOSTON (CBS) – While it’s still unclear if Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola will play for the Patriots this weekend, we know Stevan Ridley won’t be suiting up.
The running back was the lone Patriot listed as “out” for Sunday’s contest against the Bengals in Cincinatti on Friday’s injury report. Ridley missed all three practice sessions this week with a knee injury.
Gronkowski and Amendola were among 10 Patriots listed as “questionable” for the game, though reports on Friday say Amendola is more likely to play than Gronkowski.
Amendola raised some curiosity levels around Gillette after Friday’s practice when he said he was “looking forward to Sunday,” but would not elaborate if that meant he was playing or not.
“Had a good day today, so we’ll see what tomorrow’s like and go from there,” he said.
Special teams captain Matthew Slater was limited in his return to practice after breaking his wrist two weeks ago, but is listed as “doubtful” for Sunday.
Both Kyle Arrington and Will Svitek were full participants on Friday, and are “probable” to play in Sunday’s tilt.
