Key offensive weapons Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman were both back on the New England Patriots practice field Friday, and Gronkowski has a chance to play Sunday night at Houston.
The tight end, who has missed one game since hurting his right knee in a loss to Denver Nov. 29, had his second day of limited practice Friday and was listed as questionable when the team released its injury report.
"I'm doing everything I can to get better every single day, and it feels good to be back just with my teammates," Gronkowski said during a 20-second encounter with reporters after practice. "Just mentally, it feels good to be back with them out on the practice field."
Edelman, who has missed the past three games after breaking his left foot, appeared for the first time at practice but is officially out for Sunday.
Revis almost ready
New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis fully participated in practice for the first time since suffering a concussion three weeks ago. He's listed as probable for the Jets' game against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
"He still has to be cleared by one more doctor," coach Todd Bowles said. "Pending that clearance, he'll be good to go."
Revis has been in the NFL's concussion protocol since the injury on Nov. 22 at Houston. Despite the Jets going 2-0 in his absence, Revis' return will be a boost to the secondary.
"You're still talking about one of the best corners in the game," defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers said. "Any time you can have him with you, you feel a lot better. We like any matchup he's on."
Marcus Williams, Revis' backup, is questionable because of a sprained knee that kept him out against the Giants last Sunday.
Brown pays the price
Pittsburgh wide receiver Antonio Brown was fined $11,576 by the NFL for jumping onto the goal post groin-first while celebrating a touchdown.
Brown returned a punt 71 yards for a score in the final minutes of Pittsburgh's 45-10 rout of Indianapolis last Sunday night, jumped on the goal post and slid down. He was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Steelers kicker Chris Boswell was fined $8,681 Friday for unnecessary roughness after tackling the Colts' Quan Bray on a return in the fourth quarter of the game.
•Free-agent running back Pierre Thomas signed with the Washington Redskins, who ruled out third-down back Chris Thompson for Sunday's game at the Chicago Bears. Washington also announced that it put defensive lineman Stephen Paea (toe) on injured reserve.
•Running back Marshawn Lynch rejoined the Seattle Seahawks for rehab work at the team's facility earlier this week. Coach Pete Carroll said it will be "week to week" regarding when Lynch might rejoin practice. Lynch underwent surgery on Nov. 25 for an injury related to a sports hernia.
•The New York Giants waived defensive end Damontre Moore, 23, a former third-round pick. Moore was in his third season with the team and had played in 11 of the Giants' 12 games. He was inactive against Dallas on Oct. 25.
