Rob Gronkowski was spotted walking to Gillette Stadium without a hitch prior to Sunday's game between the Patriots and the Broncos. We break down the fantasy implications.

Rob Gronkowski was spotted walking without a hitch up to Gillette Stadium prior to Sunday's game between the New England Patriots and the Denver Broncos, according to Albert Breer of NFL.com. Gronkowski was listed as questionable for Sunday on the Pats' Friday injury report due to a hip injury.

Fantasy Impact: Sunday's report from Breer lends credence to suspicions that Gronkowski would play despite being one of a dozen Pats players listed as questionable heading into the game. He reportedly played through the pain of the hip injury last week, as well. You will want to check back with the Pats' official inactive list to be released around 11:30 p.m. ET, but for now it appears that Gronkowski will suit up.
