Gronkowski limited again, but probable to play

Foxboro, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was limited in practice again Friday but was listed as probable to play in Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Gronkowski missed the first six games of the season after numerous surgeries on his back and forearm and the Patriots added a hamstring injury to their report for him this week.

He was a limited participant each day of practice this week and Patriots coach Bill Belichick wouldn't say how much Gronkowski's hamstring injury has sidetracked the tight end from fully dealing with his other ailments.

"We'll just list the injuries today at the end of practice on the injury report the way we see it. We'll do that with everybody," said the normally tight-lipped Belichick.

Defensive tackle Tommy Kelly (knee) is the only player the Patriots (6-2) have ruled out for the game.

Cornerbacks Aqib Talib (hip) and Kyle Arrington (groin) and running back Leon Washington (ankle) were all listed as questionable.

Quarterback Tom Brady, dealing with a right shoulder injury, practiced fully and is expected to play.
