Patriots’ Gronkowski listed on first Week 11 injury report

FOXBOROUGH, MA (WHDH) - The New England Patriots have released their first injury report following the team’s Week 10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

As expected, all eyes were on Rob Gronkowski’s status. Gronkowski suffered a big-time hit midway through the team’s 31-24 loss to Seattle. Gronkowski briefly left the game but later returned and was Brady’s target on a fourth-and-goal play at the end of the game that fell short.

In the injury report, Gronkowski was the only player listed who did not participate in practice. His status for Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers remains uncertain.

Others listed on the injury report included Martellus Bennett, Alan Branch, Julian Edelman, and Chris Hogan.

All four others were listed as limited participants in Wednesday’s practice.

Gronkowski was hit by Seahawks safety Earl Thomas after an incomplete pass over the middle. After the game, Thomas tweeted that he has “Nothing but respect for Gronk” and said he hoped the star tight end manages to get back on the field “sooner than later.”

Gronkowski replied in a tweet of his own, saying, “The respect is mutual man, you got the best of me on that one.”
