New, comments

Both Rob Gronkowski of the Patriots and Garrett Graham of the Texans are expected to play on Sunday.

Neither the Houston Texans nor the New England Patriots have anyone listed as out, doubtful or even questionable for Sunday's game that should feature two very healthy teams. Among the players slated to play in the game are tight ends Garrett Graham and Rob Gronkowski.

The Patriots' Gronkowski returned to play in Week 17 against the Dolphins after a broken forearm earlier in the season forced him to the sidelines for more than a month. He caught just two passes, but did record a touchdown, in a 28-0 win against the Dolphins. However, he was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday before practicing in full on Friday.

Graham, an underrated weapon in the Texans' offense, suffered a concussion during the team's 19-13 victory against the Cincinnati Bengals in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs. After working on a limited basis on Wednesday, the third-year tight end practiced in full on Thursday and Friday in full.

Kickoff on Sunday is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. ET and will be televised on CBS. The winning team will advance to the AFC Championship to face either the Baltimore Ravens or Denver Broncos.
