Just over a week ahead of the team's third Super Bowl in four years, the New England Patriots' injury report has a handful of players on it

The most important injuries to watch are a pair of concussions that have held All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski and defensive end Detrich Wise Jr. out of all three of the team's practices this week.

Defensive tackle Malcom Brown has also been sidelined for a pair of the practices with a foot injury, but is a bit further along than the two concussed players.

Both running back Mike Gillislee and offensive tackle LaAdrian Waddle have been limited participants this week.

If the Super Bowl were to be played this Sunday, both Gronkowski and Wise would likely be out for the game. The loss of either player could be extremely detrimental to the team's chances of bringing home a second straight Lombardi Trophy.
