Rob Gronkowski Listed as Questionable for Super Bowl on Patriots’ Preliminary Injury Report


FOXBORO, Mass. — The Patriots released a preliminary injury report Friday, and tight end Rob Gronkowski was one of 13 players listed as questionable for the Super Bowl. That could change next week, though.

Gronkowski didn't participate all week. The other 12 players listed as questionable were limited throughout the week: wide receiver Deion Branch (knee), offensive lineman Marcus Cannon (ankle), safety Patrick Chung (knee), linebacker Dane Fletcher (thumb), safety James Ihedigbo (shoulder), defensive lineman Kyle Love (ankle), left guard Logan Mankins (knee), linebacker Rob Ninkovich (hip), linebacker Brandon Spikes (knee), right tackle Sebastian Vollmer (foot, back), wide receiver Wes Welker (knee) and linebacker Tracy White (abdomen).

Center Dan Connolly (groin) and wide receiver Matthew Slater (shoulder) fully participated all week and were listed as probable.

The Patriots will release injury reports next Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and the game-day designations could change by the end of the week.
