Gronkowski even declined to return the Lions' calls, according to sources reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Here is the full list of Patriots inactives: Gordon, tight end Jacob Hollister, safety Patrick Chung, defensive end Trey Flowers, cornerback Eric Rowe, and offensive linemen Brian Schwenke and Cole Croston.

Josh Gordon's New England Patriots debut is going to have to wait at least a week.

New England enters Week 3 coming off a loss of its own.

J.C. Jackson, Keion Crossen and Derek Rivers are all active and will be making their National Football League debuts.

Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is inactive, potentially giving Tom Brady more time to pass.

State investigating restaurant that calmed lobsters with pot
Department of Health and Human Services spokeswoman Emily Spencer wouldn't say whether the state had asked Gill to halt the sales. When Gill then removed Roscoe's claw bands and returned him to a tank with the other lobsters, she says, he was less aggressive.

The receiver tweaked his hamstring before he was traded, and Rapoport said the team is preparing for Sunday's game for both scenarios involving Gordon.

Marcus Cannon is active after missing last week with a calf injury.

Several storylines surround this matchup, but the biggest is Lions head coach Matt Patricia's first game against his former team. The Sunday Night Football game is scheduled to kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET, and will be broadcast on NBC.

Familiar faces: Patricia has brought in a half-dozen ex-Patriots since taking over in Detroit.

The Lions proceeded to do a toss to LeGarrette Blount, and the play went nowhere.
