Rob Gronkowski: (Forearm) Not Expected To Play Against 49ers
Update: Though Gronkowski (left forearm/hip) is one of the 19 players listed as questionable by the Patriots this week, he is not expected to play Sunday night against the 49ers, the Boston Globe reports.

Recommendation: Add NFL Network's Albert Breer to those who view Gronkowski as unlikely to play, while ESPN's Mike Reiss considers the tight end a long-shot, adding that it is unlikely he would play a major role even if he is active Sunday. In any case, we'll have confirmation -- one way or another -- prior to Sunday's 8:20 ET kickoff, but we're also quite skeptical that he'll be out there in Week 15.
