Gronk questionable for Sunday's game against Dolphins

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The New England Patriots have listed tight end Rob Gronkowski as questionable for Sunday's game against Miami, one week after he missed the season opener with a hamstring injury.

Defensive back Eric Rowe, acquired in a trade with Philadelphia last week, was listed as out on Friday's practice report because of an ankle injury. Linebacker Dont'a Hightower (knee) is doubtful for the game after missing practice all three days.

Gronkowski had limited participation in practice each day this week.

Quarterback Tom Brady and defensive lineman Rob Ninkovich are under NFL suspension and will also miss the game.
