New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Sunday's matchup against the New York Giants.

Gronkowski's left ankle has been the main injury focus heading into Super Bowl XLVI, and he took the field for the second straight day after practicing on a limited bases Thursday for the first time since suffering his injury in the AFC Championship Game against Baltimore.

New England head coach Bill Belichick told the media on Friday that Gronkowski had no setbacks after Thursday's session.

Gronkowski had a record-breaking season for the Patriots, setting an NFL mark for tight ends with 17 touchdown receptions. He also scored once on the ground and finished with 90 catches -- second on the team behind only Wes Welker's 122 -- for 1,327 yards.

The Patriots listed 10 other players as questionable, including safety Patrick Chung (knee), guard Logan Mankins (knee), linebacker Rob Ninkovich (hip), linebacker Brandon Spikes (knee) and Welker (knee).
