Medically cleared, Gronkowski remains questionable

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski may have been cleared by his small army of doctors, but he’s yet to be cleared by Dr. Day-to-Day.

The official injury report for Sunday’s game at the Jets shows that Gronkowski is questionable to play.  Technically, it’s means that Gronkowski is 50-50 to play.

Coach Bill Belichick isn’t playing the 50-50 game with three other players; receiver Danny Amendola (concussion, groin), defensive lineman Tommy Kelly (knee), and running back Leon Washington (ankle) have each been scratched for the Week Seven showdown.

Cornerback Aqib Talib (hip) is listed as doubtful, even though he practiced on Friday.  (We reported on Thursday that he’s unlikely to play.)

Also questionable are running back Brandon Bolden (knee), tackle Marcus Cannon (shoulder), guard Dan Connolly (concussion), receiver Julian Edelman (thigh), tight end Michael Hoomanawanui (knee), receiver Matt Slater (wrist), and safety Tavon Wilson (hamstring).

Cornerback Kyle Arrington (groin), safety Devin McCourty (shoulder), defensive end Rob Ninkovich (groin), and tackle Nate Solder (back) are each listed as probable.

The next developments will likely comes on Saturday, when we find out whether the questionable players and Talib make the trip to New York with the rest of the team.  Those who don’t necessarily are out.

    I hope he doesn’t murder anyone.

    I swear Amendola & Gronk are both made of glass. Patriots have to be kicking themselves for awarding these two bozos big contracts. You live by the sword, you die by the sword.

    I think its more of a cadre of Dr’s than an army.

    Poor little Patriots. Can’t put a ring on their fingers anymore after the Big MAN took their video cameras away. Gronk the Glass House won’t help their cause either.

    Quick – check your fantasy football rosters…

    Pats next injury report:
    Gronkowski: Questionable – “Heart” problem

    And Tom Brady (shoulder) is questionable as well…for the last 5 years.

    Really man. How old are you?

    I’ll end all the speculation here.

    HE’S PLAYING.

    IF…and that’s a big IF the Pats knock off another Ryan this week with a field full of no names THEN BB is challenging for GOAT.

    too funny … you’re STILL griping about this …. and how have the Jets done recently?? …. grow up and move on

  15. bamboozle99 says: Oct 18, 2013 6:17 PM

    It’s actually quite simple. Dad has said Gronk will rest till week 6. everything else that’s been said is just smoke and mirrors, NE Pats style.

  16. jvelvet72 says: Oct 18, 2013 6:17 PM

    He better lay off the cooz for a while

  17. baltimoresnativeson says: Oct 18, 2013 6:25 PM

    If you don’t think bill will play a cleared Gronk this sunday I can clearly see your nuts.

    I agree.
    I say one day after Brady retires, Bb does this again with another little known QB and eventually the Lombardi trophy becomes the Belichick trophy.

    He plays; does well; I finally get my anticipated TE fantasy points…….Been carrying him as long as NE and it is getting tiring.

    @wolfmanpatriot

    LOL….. a classic

    Gronk active for week 7…placed on IR week 8.

  23. bradybbgoat says: Oct 18, 2013 10:04 PM

    All teams deal with injuries, but I think its safe to say this team has the injury bug this year.

    Maybe we shouldn’t have practiced with Tampa in the preseason…

  24. billybenoitlsu says: Oct 18, 2013 10:05 PM

    If Gronk plays football this Sunday like he danced in Vegas with out a shirt …..Jets will shut the Pats out.

    Interesting to see that Dr.Andrews is now an expert in spine & forearm fractures… some people don’t know when to stop, when it looks so foolish

    Finally we get to see the best tight end ever play his first game of the year.
