New England Patriots vs. San Francisco 49ers Injury Report

The New England Patriots and San Francisco 49ers are the top teams in their respective conferences, and they are set to square off in a highly anticipated battle on Sunday Night Football. In fact, this game could be a preview of the Super Bowl. Let’s take a look at the injuries that are impacting both teams, with nobody having been formally ruled out yet. However, pass-catchers Rob Gronkowski and Mario Manningham are expected to be inactive.
