New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is inactive as expected, but running back Dion Lewis is active for Sunday’s game with the San Francisco 49ers.

Gronkowski injured his chest in the second quarter of last week’s game against the Seattle Seahawks after taking a hard hit from safety Earl Thomas. He returned to the game, but did not practice all week.

Lewis was taken off injured reserve last week, but was inactive against Seattle. He hasn’t played since having surgery on his left knee in November 2015 to repair an anterior cruciate ligament.
