Patriots injury report: Gronkowski, seven others questionable

Patriots injury report: Gronkowski, seven others questionable

A day after saying he wasn’t 100 percent because of a hamstring issue, tight end Rob Gronkowski is officially listed as questionable on the injury report for the Patriots’ season opener on Sunday night against the Cardinals in Arizona.

Seven other Patriots are also listed as questionable: guard Jonathan Cooper (foot), defensive end Trey Flowers (shoulder), guard Shaq Mason (hand), linebacker Shea McClelllin (shoulder), receiver Malcolm Mitchell (elbow), tackle Nate Solder (hamstring) and receiver Chris Hogan (shoulder). 

A Providence Journal report Friday said Gronkowski, Solder and Cooper did not travel with the Patriots on Friday to Arizona. 

Gronkowski has been limited in practice all week. He sustained the hamstring injury in a joint practice with the Chicago Bears on Aug. 15. Hogan has been a full participant in practice all week. All others listed were limited in their on-the-field work this week.

This season, the NFL has revamped the injury report so that "probable" is no longer a designation, and the "questionable" designation means that it is "uncertain" as to whether or not a player will play. The "questionable" designation used to indicate that there was a 50-50 chance the player in question would play.

Remember when Brandin Cooks rode Rob Gronkowski around like a horse to celebrate a Patriots touchdown back in November?

Well, Gronk doing Gronk things in Miami managed to find about the only person he could ride. 

Shaquille O'Neal, at 7-foot-1, gave 6-7 Gronk a ride on his shoulders as they celebrated the debut of "Shaq's Fun House" as part of the three-day Ultra Music Festival in Miami.

So, who won the dance-off?
