The Patriots will be without Rob Gronkowski for another week in Cincinnati on Sunday, but Danny Amendola could make his return.
Amendola is traveling with the team to Cincinnati and is listed as “questionable” for their game against the Bengals on Sunday afternoon, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Gronkowski, on the other hand, will not travel with the team yet again this week and has been ruled out.
Amendola could be back on the field for the first time since suffering a groin injury in a Week 1 win against the Bills. The team’s decision to bring him along for the trip is a very good sign, even if he ultimately doesn’t play on Sunday. Gronkowski will miss his fifth game of the season on Sunday, while he continues to recover from offseason back and forearm surgeries.
