Patriots vs. Dolphins injury report: Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez questionable

The Patriots are hoping to have their full complement of weapons against the Dolphins.


Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez and Wes Welker are all listed on the Patriots Week 17 injury report. Gronkowski is still recovering from a broken forearm, while Hernandez and Welker continue to play through ankle injuries. All three men were limited in practice on Friday. Gronkowski has missed significant time and there is no doubt quarterback Tom Brady would love to have both his talented tight ends back on the field.

New England has a long list of questionables, but no players are listed as out for Sunday's matchup with the Dolphins. The Patriots still have a shot at home-field advantage in the playoffs and could use that extra week of rest.

Davone Bess is the only player listed as out for the Dolphins, who have a much shorter list of injuries than the Patriots. Miami will be playing for pride and a .500 record as they were eliminated from postseason contention last week.
