The weekly "injury travel updates" are in and it appears the Patriots will be without tight end Rob Gronkowski on Sunday, although they may have another offensive weapon back.

According to the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe and Ron Borges, Gronkowski didn't travel with the team to Cincinnati, but Danny Amendola did.  That could see the Patriots finally get back the veteran wideout, who hasn't played since week one when he heroically fought through a groin injury in the second half during New England's opening day win in Buffalo.

Also traveling with the team, according to NESN's Doug Kyed, is running back Brandon Bolden, who is battling through a knee injury but will hopefully be able to contribute considering the fact the Patriots will be without Stevan Ridley, who didn't practice this week and is "out" against the Bengals.
