Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola say they'll play Sunday vs. Texans

FOXBORO -- Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola didn’t need to say much at Gillette Stadium Friday. As long as they said the three magic words, Pats fans would be content. 

“Good to go,” Amendola, who missed last week’s win over the Saints with a concussion and knee injury, said at his locker. 

Amendola’s confirmation that he’d play came shortly after Rob Gronkowski, who left the Saints game with a groin injury, said the same. 

“Am I good to go? Yeah, I’m good to go,” he said. “I’m ready.”

The return of both players comes at a time when Tom Brady may be without another one of his weapons. Rex Burkhead, who has 67 total yards through two games and had a receiving touchdown in New Orleans, was once again absent from Friday’s practice with a rib injury. 

Gronkowski will have his work cut out for him against the Texans. Through two games, Houston has allowed just four receptions to tight ends — second-fewest in the league behind only the Bengals — for 60 yards and no touchdowns.

Patriots LB Harvey Langi's wife posts emotional video of hospital reunion

Days after Patriots linebacker Harvey Langi and his wife, Cassidy, were injured in car accident, she posted a video on Instagram of their tearful reunion in the hospital.

Friday the 13, 2017 was date night for Harv and I 👫On our way home we stopped at the light to turn to our house, when all of a sudden a SUV rammed straight into us. I completely blacked out and don’t remember anything, while Harvey remembers seeing me, his wife, laying lifeless and gushing blood. It’s been 3 days since that moment and we were finally reunited. We have been in the hospital for a few days and still have a few days to go. We are so completely blessed to have each other to lean on through all of this craziness. We are so grateful for all of our family and friends who have taken the time to come visit us, reached out to us, prayed for us, and have shown us their love and support. Our hearts are completely full right now ❤️ I just want my husband Havea to know how blessed I am to be your wife. I know this is a huge trial we will be facing but I know we can get through this together, day by day. Thank you for always loving me and staying by my side through it all. I love you with all my heart babe 💜😘

An SUV slammed into the Langis' car as they waited at a red light Friday night near their apartment in Foxboro, about six miles from Gillette Stadium. 

Cassidy Langi sustained broken ribs and fractures to both hips. The injuries to Harvey Langi, an undrafted rookie free agent from BYU who made the team out of training camp, are considered less serious. Both had to be freed from the car with the jaws of life.
