We’ll have more regarding the status of Amendola and TE Rob Gronkowski leading up to kickoff Sunday.
- Guregian adds that Gronkowski is still “not a sure bet for Sunday.“
Meanwhile, Pro Football Talk‘s Mike Florio reports that a league source has informed him that Gronkowski is “unlikely to play” in Week 5 game.
There is still a chance that Gronkowski could suit up for Sunday’s game against the Bengals, but it appears as he’s more likely to return for Week 6’s game against the Saints.
Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski and WR Danny Amendola did not travel to Atlanta and will not play Sunday night vs. Falcons.

“As of today, they are playing,” said Volin’s source. “But a lot of time between now and Sunday night.”
Both players have practiced on a limited basis throughout the week, so even with this report, there are still plenty of questions regarding their Week 4 status. We’ll have more leading up kickoff on Sunday.
