Found September 30, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will be without two of his top options against the Buffalo Bills, as wide receiver Julian Edelman (hand) and tight end Aaron Hernandez (ankle) are listed as out.  The line in front of Brady is also banged up, as left guard Logan Mankins wasn’t able to make the trip to Buffalo.

Still, Brady will have one of his favorite targets to look to as tight end Rob Gronkowski was able to make the trip and will suit up against the Bills.
Edelman is still dealing with a hand injury that caused him to miss the entire week of practice.  Hernandez sustained his ankle injury during the Patriots week 2 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, and it’s not clear when he’ll be able to return to action.
For this reason it would have been devastating if Gronkowski was unable to go for the Pats.  He suffered a hip injury during practice Friday and New England had him listed as questionable, but it appears the injury is not serious.

NFL Rumors: Patriots List Rob Gronkowski As Questionable But Tight End Fully Expects To Play

When the New England Patriots release their weekly injury report, not even a senior theoretical physicist could truly predict what it really means.
