While the Patriots are getting healthier, they still have a few players up in the air for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Here are a few updates on some of the injured Patriots players.

-- Running back Sony Michel is expected to play, according to multiple reports. Michel has missed the last two games with a knee injury. This likely means Cordarrelle Patterson won't have as big of a role in the running game.

-- Rob Gronkowski reportedly is not expected to play due to ankle/back injuries, but it is worth noting the tight end did make the trip, so he hasn't officially been ruled out. It appears the team is taking a cautious with him considering the bye week is next week. Bill Belichick could always change his mind at the last minute, though.

-- Offensive lineman Shaq Mason did not travel to Tennessee and was downgraded to out Saturday night.

-- The Patriots added Matthew Slater to the injury report Sunday morning due to an illness. He's questionable.

The Titans and Patriots will kickoff at 1 p.m.
