LB Jamie Collins questionable for Pats

Starting linebacker Jamie Collins is listed as questionable on the team’s injury report, as the New England Patriots have had to recalibrate plans in the event Collins isn’t ready for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. Collins, who first showed up on the injury report Thursday after injuring his thigh, did not practice Friday. Meanwhile, tight end Rob Gronkowski was upgraded to probable as he continues to make progress in his recovery.

Patriots' dual threat Vereen should challenge Vikings

The toughest guy to cover on the Patriots might not be the man they call Gronk, the one who spikes footballs hard during the season and apparently slams shot glasses even harder in the offseason.

Injury report: Brady, Gronk 'questionable'

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- While New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is expected to play in Sunday's season opener, Bill Belichick has listed him as questionable on the club's final injury report of the week. Brady was limited in Friday's practice. In the past, Brady has been listed as probable, so the questionable designation sheds light that the calf injury he suffered in Wednesday's practice is more than just a passing ailment. Elsewhere, tight end Rob Gronkowski is officially questionable.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski declared that he is ready to play in the Sept. 7 season opener against the Dolphins, while also adding that a full workload isn't a realistic expectation. “Definitely not [playing] every single snap.
