On Sunday afternoon the Buffalo Bills will be in Foxboro to take on the New England Patriots. The Patriots enter the contest as losers of back-to-back contests in what has been a disappointing December for Bill Belichick and company.

New England released its injury report on Thursday afternoon and there are a few significant names on the report. Notably, star tight end Rob Gronkowski, who was not on the injury report earlier in the week, was limited in practice on Thursday.

The Patriots revealed Gronk is dealing with an ankle, though his status for this Sunday's game remains up in the air as of right now.

New England enters the game against Buffalo with the news that Josh Gordon has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL. That leaves the Patriots with an injured Gronk, Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan as the team's primary weapons on the outside.

Buffalo and New England kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET.
