On Sunday afternoon the Minnesota Vikings will be in Foxboro to take on the New England Patriots. The matchup promises to be one of the most entertaining of the weekend as the high-octane passing attack from both teams take the field.

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 back and ankle injuries, though he appears healthy enough to take the field this weekend.

Gronk returned to the team last Sunday against the New York Jets after missing nearly a month of football. The star tight end reeled in three catches for 56 yards and a touchdown in his first game action since October.

Minnesota and New England kick off at 4:25 p.m. ET.
