FOXBOROUGH — Tom Brady participated fully in Friday’s practice, and was officially listed by the Patriots as probable to play in Sunday’s game against the Dolphins with a right shoulder injury.

Receiver Danny Amendola (concussion/groin) and cornerback Aqib Talib (hip) are listed as questionable, despite practicing all week. Though “questionable” indicates a 50-50 chance of playing, Amendola sounded more confident than that.

“I had a good week, and I’m ready to go,” Amendola said. “The game’s coming and I feel as good as I can. Not really worried about the past, just worried about the future, and excited and looking forward to Sunday.”


Tight end Rob Gronkowski (back/forearm) is listed as probable for the first time all season. He was questionable last week, when he made his season debut against the Jets.
