Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and running back Sony Michel are both questionable to play in the team’s matchup with the Titans on Sunday.
Gronkowski and Michel were both limited participants in New England’s practice Friday, the team announced. Four other players, including linebacker Dont’a Hightower, were also listed as questionable.

Gronkowski has missed two of the team’s last three games with ankle and back injuries. He has caught 29 passes for 448 yards and a touchdown. He told reporters Friday the Patriots’ coaching staff will make the final call on whether he plays.
“It’s a coach’s decision,” Gronkowski said (via NESN). “If coach thinks I can go, I can go.”
Michel has been dealing with a knee injury and last played in the Patriots’ 38-31 win over the Bears on Oct. 21. He has averaged 4.4 yards per carry and rushed for four touchdowns in six games in 2018.
The Patriots will enter the matchup against the Titans in first place of the AFC East with a 7-2 record.
