NFL Media's Albert Breer reported earlier this week that Rob Gronkowski was unlikely to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. The Patriots are giving their fans some hope however.

New England listed Gronkowski (back/forearm) as questionable on its injury report Friday after being limited in practice all week. That's an upgrade from the first two weeks during which he was listed as doubtful. Wide receiver Danny Amendola is doubtful because of his groin injury.
