EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is active and is making his regular-season debut against the New York Jets.
Gronkowski had been listed as questionable for the game Sunday despite his agent Drew Rosenhaus saying Friday that the tight end had been cleared by his doctors to play. Gronkowski had offseason surgery on his back and broken left forearm, but participated in every practice on a limited basis since the season began.
Wide receiver Danny Amendola is out with a concussion. Also among the inactives for the Patriots are defensive tackle Tommy Kelly (knee), cornerback Aqib Talib (hip) and running back Leon Washington (ankle).
Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes is inactive, as expected, with a hamstring injury.
