New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles with a knee injury, the team announced on Friday.
The Patriots released an update on Tuesday, calling Gronkowski “week-to-week” with a bone bruise and right knee sprain that he sustained last week against the Denver Broncos. He was carted off the field in the fourth quarter after a hit to the leg from Darian Stewart and did not return.
Julian Edelman (foot) was also ruled out, and Danny Amendola (knee) is listed as questionable. If Amendola is forced to sit, quarterback Tom Brady will once again be forced to lean on Brandon LaFell and Scott Chandler in the passing game.
Kickoff between the Eagles and Patriots is set for 4:25 p.m. ET.
