Wednesday's Pats-Bills practice report

September, 4, 2013
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- There were no surprises on the Patriots' first injury report of the 2013 regular season as it relates to tight end Rob Gronkowski, who was officially listed as limited during Wednesday's session due to back and forearm injuries. Gronkowski, of course, had surgery on both areas this offseason.

The injury report also provided some clarity on other health issues of note. Wide receiver Danny Amendola, who sat out the team's third preseason game, was limited due to a groin issue. Four other Patriots were limited: running back Brandon Bolden (knee), safety Nate Ebner (ankle), safety Duron Harmon (hamstring) and wide receiver Aaron Dobson (hamstring), while offensive tackle Will Svitek did not participate due to a knee injury.

The Patriots will distribute another participation report on Thursday and designate injured players as probable, questionable, doubtful or out on Friday's list.

Here are the full practice participation reports for the Patriots and Bills.
