Amendola out, Talib doubtful, Gronkowski questionable

The Patriots have declared three players out for Sunday’s game against their AFC East rivals the Jets, including wide receiver Danny Amendola, who suffered a concussion against the Saints and continues to nurse a groin injury.

Defensive tackle Tommy Kelly (knee) and running back Leon Washington (ankle) are also out.

Cornerback Aqib Talib (hip), who was on the practice field Friday for limited work, is listed as doubtful, meaning there is only a 25 percent chance he will play.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski (back/forearm), whose agent, Drew Rosenhaus, declared Friday morning that his client has been medically cleared to play this week, is one of several Patriots listed as questionable.


New England added tackle Nate Solder (back) to the report, but he is listed as probable.

The Jets have ruled out wide receivers Santonio Holmes (foot/hamstring) and Greg Salas (knee). All other players on their report are probable.
