FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Breathe easy, Patriots fans. As expected, Tom Brady is active, and so is Rob Gronkowski.

The New England star quarterback and tight end were both listed as questionable heading into the team’s game Sunday against the New York Jets.

Brady missed two days of practice with a knee injury, but returned Friday — although the Patriots were taking a wait-and-see approach. Gronkowski missed last week’s game at San Francisco with a chest injury and it appeared early in the week that he would also miss this week, but he improved enough for the Patriots to make him active.

Tight end Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) and wide receivers Julian Edelman (foot) and Chris Hogan (back) are also playing after being listed as questionable, making all of Brady’s top targets available. — Dennis Waszak Jr. reporting from East Rutherford, New Jersey.
