CINCINNATI (AP) - Tight end Rob Gronkowski is inactive for the Patriots again against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Gronkowski has missed all five games while recovering from a broken forearm and back surgery, leaving New England without its top passing target. Austin Collie, signed Thursday to help a depleted receiving group, was inactive as well Sunday.
The Bengals are missing top cornerback Leon Hall for the second straight game with a hamstring injury. Defensive end Michael Johnson also is out after sustaining a concussion during a 17-6 loss at Cleveland a week earlier.
Both teams were trying to get through injuries Sunday. The Patriots lost defensive tackle Vince Wilfork to a torn Achilles tendon during a win over Atlanta last Sunday.
