FOXBOROUGH — Receiver Julian Edelman and safety Steve Gregory have been ruled out for Sunday’s home game against Denver, while tight end Aaron Hernandez and 11 others are listed as questionable.
Hernandez hasn’t played since injuring his ankle Sept. 16 against the Cardinals, and only returned to practice Thursday. He was limited both Thursday and Friday, so his availability for Sunday is uncertain.
Neither Edelman (hand) nor Gregory (hip) has practiced all week.
The others listed as questionable: tight ends Rob Gronkowski (hip) and Michael Hoomanawanui (concussion), defensive linemen Brandon Deaderick (ankle) and Justin Francis (ankle), running backs Brandon Bolden (knee) and Shane Vereen (foot), offensive linemen Sebastian Vollmer (back), Logan Mankins (calf/hip), and Nick McDonald (shoulder), linebacker Dont’a Hightower (hamstring), and cornerback Sterling Moore (knee). Defensive tackle Kyle Love (knee) is probable.
Quarterback Tom Brady, who was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday (listed with a right shoulder injury) participated fully Friday and was removed from the injury report.
