Scott Heavey

The New England Patriots ruled out tight end Rob Gronkowski, defensive end Chandler Jones and guard Logan Mankins due to injury for Thursday's game against the New York Jets.

The New England Patriots ruled three players out for Thursday's game against the New York Jets. Tight end Rob Gronkowski (forearm), defensive end Chandler Jones (ankle), and guard Logan Mankins (ankle/calf) all did not take part in Wednesday's walkthrough and will not play on Thursday. Gronkowski broke his arm on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts and Jones sprained his ankle in that same game. Mankins did not play against the Colts due to his injuries.

New England listed 13 players as limited on Wednesday and questionable for Thursday's game: defensive tackle Ron Brace (elbow), wide receiver Wes Welker (ankle), guard Dan Connolly (back), safety Pat Chung (shoulder/hamstring), safety Steve Gregory (hip), tight end Aaron Hernandez (ankle), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (hamstring), wide receiver Brandon Lloyd (knee), offensive lineman Nick McDonald (shoulder), defensive end Trevor Scott (hamstring), linebacker Brandon Scott (knee), tackle Sebastian Vollmer (back/knee), and linebacker Tracy White (foot). The Patriots hope Hernandez can return to the field for the first time since Oct. 21 to help replace Gronkowski.

Wide receiver Julian Edelman (hand), defensive tackle Kyle Love (knee), and linebacker Jerod Mayo (elbow) all were full participants on Wednesday and are listed as probable.
