Gronkowski officially out against 49ers

FOXBORO -- Rob Gronkowski will not play Sunday night against San Francisco.
Hopes should not have floated too high after the tight end practiced Friday -- it was his first and only workout since breaking his forearm November 18 and undergoing surgery.
Defensive lineman Ron Brace and linebacker Tracy White are both sidelined with elbow injuries after being limited in practice last week. Brace also didn't play last Monday night against Houston.
The good news for New England is that cornerback Aqib Talib (hip) and Nate Solder (abdomen), who appeared on the injury report after the Texans game, will both be available against San Francisco.
