Two of the Patriots' biggest offensive threats -- Rob Gronkowski and Sony Michel -- missed Sunday's game against the Packers, but it seems at least one of them will be back next week against the Titans.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter on Monday Night Countdown, Michel is likely to play as long as he has a good week of practice.

The rookie running back suffered a knee injury against the Bears two weeks ago and missed the following game against the Bills. Michel practiced all last week on a limited basis and was officially listed as questionable, but did not play.

This would be a big boost to the Patriots offense as wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson has been the leading rusher the last two weeks.

As for Gronkowski, Schefter said he is considered week-to-week with ankle/back injuries. It was also noted that the Patriots have their bye week after the Titans game, so perhaps it might make most sense to give the tight end an extra week of rest.

The Patriots are off on Tuesday and will practice for the first time this week on Wednesday.
