Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski said on Thursday that he’s “week-to-week” because of the hamstring injury he suffered during a practice last month and word out of New England was that he’ll be a game-time decision for Sunday night’s game against the Cardinals.

The Patriots confirmed that on Friday by listing Gronkowski as questionable for the regular season opener. Gronkowski has been a limited participant at Patriots practices all week.

Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reported that the tight end is expected to play barring any setbacks. The only official hint that the Patriots are likely to give before the release of the inactive lists on Sunday is whether or not Gronkowski travels with the team.

Seven other Patriots are listed as questionable on their final injury report before kickoff. Linebacker Shea McClellin, wide receiver Chris Hogan, tackle Nate Solder, guard Jonathan Cooper, guard Shaq Mason, wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell and defensive lineman Trey Flowers all took part in Friday’s practice. Hogan was the only full participant.

UPDATE 4:48 p.m. ET: Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal reports that Gronkowski, Solder and Cooper were not on the team’s flight to Arizona. The team has not made any update to their injury report.

    He will not play then on Monday Pats* fans will tell you he played the whole game, even if he plays they still have no chance in AZ.

    I hope Brady is listed as Questionable with a sore right shoulder still.

    The NFL is so corrupt with their forced gambling updates, oops, I mean injury report.

    Gronk is always questionable.

    Patriots list Gronkowski’s INTEGRITY as questionable for Sunday night…..and like #12, every day after….

    Patriots do not need this win since it is out of the Division & Conference.
    They should rest Edelman, Gronk and other key players on this first game.

    Treat the game like another Preseason game and play 3rd string and practice squad to stick it to the NFL on Sunday night.

    Put the Number 12 on everyone’s jersey and add PA right next to the NFL sticker.

    No one is jealous. at. all.

    That tired smack doesn’t work and it never did.

    Talk to us when the Patriots get Lombardi number 5, that’s when you get your big boy pants.

    And by Pats fans chippy must mean he will be using some of his many aliases posing as one. No realistic Patriots fan expected they would win this game even with Gronkowski, Solder and Cooper playing. There’s a difference between knowledgeable fans that understand the season is a marathon not a sprint and have realistic expectations for their team and…you.

    I honestly don’t even understand what you’re trying to say here.

    Why would we say he played when he didn’t? Him not playing is a good excuse for if we lose, so clearly we would be using him not playing to whine about how we lost, but would have won if he was there.

    right?

    You’re a bad troll if a Pats fan has to tell you how to troll him right lol
