|DON'T WORRY STUDFELD'S BACK!|
No surprises really on the Patriots injury report.
They will likely head into Sunday's matchup with the Bucs down one Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola. At least they'll have Zach Sudfeld though!
Matthew Slater ruled out, Danny Amendola doubtful for Sunday, Patriots say. Sudfeld probable. Gronkowski, 5 others are questionable.

Amendola returned to practice on a limited basis but does not look healthy according to reporters. He was said to have needed surgery but was able to avoid it as he continues to deal with a groin problem.
Gronkowski is recovering from back surgery and while he returned to full practice this week, the team will probably want to leave him out until next week against the Falcons. He was listed as doubtful the last two weeks, and so the media is freaking out about his upgrade in unlikely status.
Zach Sudfeld pulled a hamstring in the season opener, he's unlikely to make much of an impact in this game.
