Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is officially questionable to face the Chiefs on Saturday but it looks like the Seahawks will have running back Marshawn Lynch back for Sunday.
Gronkowski has been dealing with knee and back injuries and was a limited participant at Friday’s walkthrough in New England. He’ll be a game-time decision for a Patriots team that also listed receivers Julian Edelman (foot) and Danny Amendola (knee) as questionable for Saturday’s 4:35PM ET kickoff versus the Chiefs.
The injury news was more optimistic in Seattle as Lynch appears ready to return to game action after missing eight weeks with an abdomen injury. Lynch was questionable for last week’s game versus the Vikings and wound up not making the trip to Minnesota. But with the Seahawks advancing to the Divisional round, Lynch is listed as probable for Seattle’s game in Charlotte on Sunday.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Patriots are 5-point favorites for their game versus the Chiefs on Saturday, while the Seahawks are a 1.5-point road underdog versus the Panthers at 1:05PM ET on Sunday.
