FOXBORO, Mass. — The New England Patriots are saying 12 players have a 50-50 shot of playing Saturday in the team’s postseason opener against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The situation likely isn’t that bleak, but the Patriots still listed nearly a quarter of their roster, including tight end Rob Gronkowski, as questionable to play. Every player who was limited in practice at least once this week is listed as questionable, while four players who were full participants are probable.
Gronkowski practiced Monday, Wednesday and Friday this week but was absent Tuesday and Thursday.
