Rob Gronkowski was the only player projected in the "Did Not Participate" category on the Patriots injury report.
Rob Gronkowski was the only player projected in the "Did Not Participate" category on the Patriots injury report.

Neither the New England Patriots or the New York Giants practiced today. Nonetheless, both teams released "projected injury reports.

The most interesting name on the list from a Patriots perspective is tight end Rob Gronkowski. On the report, he was projected as "Did Not Participate." Gronkowski injured his ankle against the Ravens in the AFC Championship Sunday afternoon. I wouldn't look too much into this, as this is simply a "projected" report, and I wouldn't be totally surprised if Gronkowski was limited in participation tomorrow. Of course, the situation bears watching - I just wouldn't even come close to hitting the panic button yet. After all, it was just two days ago that multiple news outlets reported that Gronkowski would be playing in the Super Bowl.

The Patriots listed 13 other players as "limited." This list included the usual "gang," although one name to watch was that of tackle Nate Solder, who was listed as questionable with a concussion.

For the Giants, Hakeem Nicks (Shoulder), Ahmad Bradshaw (Foot), and Tyler Sash (concussion) were all projected in the "Did Not Participate" category. The only other player listed was Osi Umenyiora, who was placed in the "limited participation" category.
