HOUSTON (AP) — Tight end Rob Gronkowski is active for the New England Patriots on Sunday night against the Houston Texans after missing last week's game with a sprained knee.

Gronkowski returned to practice this week, but his status was in question until Sunday. The tight end has 931 yards receiving with nine touchdowns this season.

The Patriots look to avoid their first three-game skid since 2002 when they face Houston.
