FOXBOROUGH -- For the second straight day, tight end Rob Gronkowski was the only player not spotted at Patriots practice, which was held inside Gillette Stadium under a steady, but light, drizzle.

It's the last on-field work the Patriots will conduct before Monday night's game against the Houston Texans.

An injury report will be delivered later today, with the team announcing which players, if any, will be ruled out for the Texans. It's assumed that Gronkowski will be on that list, but with defensive end Chandler Jones and left guard Logan Mankins returning to practice this week, Gronkowski might be the only one.
