Patriots will have just one active tight end vs. Bears

Chicago Bears OLB Khalil Mack, CB Bryce Callahan, WR Allen Robinson questionable vs. Patriots

Gronkowski did not make the trip to Chicago with the Patriots, but on Saturday was not ruled out of Sunday's game.

Also notable: Bears MVP pass rusher Khalil Mack is fighting through an ankle injury, which might limit him.

Prince Amukamara and Eric Kush were removed from the injury report after working out in full the past two games, while Marcus Cooper (hamstring, doubtful) is set to miss his fourth consecutive game.

However, a source told NFL Network's Mike Giardi that despite the tight end's availability this season, "All I'll say is this year hasn't been easy for him physically".

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Bears are unsure how much Mack will play.

Gronkowski is not at his usual herculean statistical pace, with 26 catches, 405 yards and just one touchdown in six games this season. Fullback Michael Burton, outside linebacker Kylie Fitts, offensive linemen Rashaad Coward and Bryan Witzmann, wide receiver Javon Wims and defensive lineman Nick Williams were healthy scratches for the Bears.

With Cannon out, right tackle LaAdrian Waddle will draw the Mack matchup.
