BOSTON (CBS) – New England Patriots defensive lineman Tommy Kelly and running back Leon Washington have been declared “out” while tight end Rob Gronkowski is among seven players listed as “questionable” for Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints.

Kelly left last week’s loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in the fourth quarter and missed all three practice sessions this week with an ankle injury. His absence will leave an even bigger void on the Patriots defensive line, which is already missing nose tackle Vince Wilfork.

Gronkowski is questionable, though a report on Friday morning said there is “less optimism” that the tight end will make his 2013 debut against the Saints.

Running back Stevan Ridley, who missed last week’s game with a knee injury, is also listed as questionable after being limited at practice all week.
