The Patriots had just five players on their final injury report for Sunday's Divisional Round clash with the Houston Texans, all of whom were listed as probable for the game.
The most notable of that group is tight end Rob Gronkowski, who missed five straight games with a fractured left forearm before returning to action for the Week 17 finale against Miami. The Pro Bowl selection recorded two catches for 42 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' 28-0 shutout of the Dolphins.
Gronkowski initially sustained the injury in a victory over Indianapolis on Nov. 18.
Cornerbacks Alfonzo Dennard (hamstring/knee) and Marquice Cole (finger), offensive lineman Nick McDonald (shoulder) and defensive end Trevor Scott (knee) are also probable to face the Texans after practicing in full on Friday.
