FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski sat out the team's last workout before its playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Patriots said in their injury report on Thursday that Gronkowski missed practice with a knee injury he sustained against the Denver Broncos on Nov. 29. An update to the report said he also had a back injury.

Gronkowski also missed Tuesday's practice. He practiced on Wednesday, but was listed on the injury report as a ''limited'' participant.

The Pro Bowl tight end was the team's leading receiver this season, with 72 catches for 1,176 yards and 11 touchdowns.
