Patriots list Rob Gronkowski as questionable for Week 13


The New England Patriots are coming off of a big overtime win over the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football just a week ago, as they prepare for a Week 13 match up against the lowly Houston Texans.

As New England is taking the time to prepare for their trip to Reliant Stadium to take on the Texans, star tight end Rob Gronkowski has been limited in practice with a back injury. He has been officially been listed as question for the game as a result of his limited participation this week.

For those that don’t remember, Gronkowski underwent back surgery during the offseason, so it isn’t entirely a surprise that he will need to rest the injury as his season goes on.

That said, it would be an absolute shock if Gronkowski is not in uniform when the team takes the field.

Despite the questionable label, we fully expect Gronkowski to suit up in Week 13 and help lift New England over the Texans.
