Source: Plan is for Gronkowski, Amendola to play Sunday

The Patriots will likely get a boost on offense Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons with the return of All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receiver Danny Amendola, according to a league source.

Gronkowski, who has been rehabilitating after undergoing back and forearm surgeries, is expected to play, as is Danny Amendola, who was been hampered with a groin injury.

The source said that, as of today, the two are playing against the Falcons, but there is “a lot of time between now and Sunday night.”

While the Patriots are taking it day by day, the plan is for the two to have a limited role in Atlanta.
