Gronkowski, Michel inactive for Pats’ matchup with Packers

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Quarterbacks Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers will both be without key players in the Sunday night matchup between the Patriots and Packers.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski and running back Sony Michel are both inactive for New England. Gronkowski is sitting for the second time in three games, this time with an ankle and back issue. Michel is missing his second straight game with a knee injury.

Receiver Geronimo Allison is inactive for the Packers.

Allison was a key contributor in the passing game before missing two weeks with a hamstring issue. He had one catch for 14 yards in returning against the Rams last week, then injured his groin this week in practice. He did not travel with the team.

The full list of inactive players:


Packers: WR Geronimo Allison, QB Tim Boyle, P Drew Kaser, CB Tony Brown, LB Korey Toomer, G Justin McCray, T Alex Light.

Patriots: TE Rob Gronkowski, RB Sony Michel, G Shaq Mason, OL Brian Schwenke, LB Nicholas Grigsby, TE Jacob Hollister, OL Cole Croston.
