The Patriots will be without DT Tommy Kelly (knee) and RB/KR Leon Washington (ankle) against the Saints on Sunday afternoon, as the team has declared both out.

Neither player practiced this week, so their status is not surprising. Kelly was injured in the second half of last week's game in Cincinnati, with Washington hurt on the game's opening kickoff.

TE Rob Gronkowski (back/forearm) is among seven players listed as questionable by New England, joining WR Danny Amendola (groin), RB Brandon Bolden (knee), RB Stevan Ridley (knee), WR Matthew Slater (wrist), C Ryan Wendell (concussion) and DB Tavon Wilson (hamstring).

In positive news, WR Aaron Dobson (neck), LB Dont'a Hightower (knee), LB Jerod Mayo (ankle) and DE Rob Ninkovich (groin) were all listed as full practice participants on Friday after being limited on Wednesday and Thursday, and all are probable. CB Kyle Arrington (groin) and DB Nate Ebner (ankle) have been removed from the list.

The Saints declared starting S Roman Harper (knee) and reserve DE Tyrunn Walker (knee) as out.
