Frank Gore RB SF 4 Days

Gore (concussion) had 26 carries for 158 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's overtime loss to the Chargers.

Gore made the Chargers defense look ridiculous on his 52-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, and he was his usual punishing and effective self on his other 25 totes. With the 49ers out of playoff contention, Gore is out to prove to teams that he deserves a rich contract as a free agent this offseason, though he may run into trouble next week against the Cardinals' stout front seven.

Gore (concussion) is active for Saturday's game against San Diego.

With Carlos Hyde (ankle) out for this one, Gore should get a decent workload, though the struggles of the 49ers offense this year make him an uninspiring fantasy consideration either way. San Diego's run defense is middle-of-the-road, so the matchup doesn't give much reason to hope for a surprise breakout by Gore. Still, his workload should be more stable than it's been in some time.

Gore (concussion) is expected to play against San Diego on Saturday despite heading into the game with a questionable designation, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Confirmation on Gore's status should be available around 7:00 eastern time, so check back around then if his status is meaningful to your fantasy football situation. With Carlos Hyde (ankle) out, Gore could see one of his most stable workloads since he saw 42 carries over Weeks 10 and 11. Of course, Gore doesn't appear to have much upside in a sinking 49ers offense.

Gore (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game against San Diego.

Gore was a limited practice participant Thursday and Friday, but he remains questionable going into the weekend. The 49ers would be very thin at running back if Gore can't go, because Carlos Hyde (ankle) is already out. Alfonso Smith and Phillip Tanner are next in line.

Gore (concussion) was limited in practice Thursday, CSN Bay Area reports.

According to coach Jim Harbaugh, Gore is in line to return to action Saturday versus the Chargers. However, he must emerge from the league's concussion protocol in order to do so, which is no guarantee considering their murky nature. As a result, keep a close eye on his status in advance of Saturday's 8:25 PM ET kickoff.

Gore continues to go through the league's concussion protocol but is on track to play Saturday against the Chargers, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

Gore was expected to take a test Thursday, but if the schedule was upheld, he has yet to gain clearance for contact. The short week isn't helping his cause, either, meaning owners should monitor his status with a watchful eye to ensure he suits up in Week 16.

Gore has yet to receive clearance from the league's concussion protocol, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports.

Although he feels "normal," Gore's inability to pass a concussion test to date suggests otherwise. His next test arrives Thursday, so his status on Thursday's injury report will inform whether he's on track to suit up Saturday against the Chargers.

Gore (concussion) did not practice Tuesday, reports.

A concussion, suffered while blocking Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner in the first half of Sunday's loss, clouds Gore's Week 16 availability. Gore arrived at the team facility Tuesday after meeting with a doctor as part of the league's concussion protocol, through which he must be cleared in order to suit up for Saturday's game against the Chargers. Backup Carlos Hyde also missed practice with ankle and back injuries.

Gore suffered a concussion in the first half of Sunday's game against the Seahawks and will not return, FOX's Erin Andrews reports.

Gore suffered the concussion while laying on block on Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner. He'll finish the day with 11 carries for 29 yards and a touchdown, while Carlos Hyde will carry the load for the 49ers the rest of the way. The 49ers have a shorter turnaround than usual before Saturday's game against the Chargers, and we'll monitor Gore's status closely leading up to that matchup.

Gore left Sunday's game against the Seahawks in the first half with a head injury and is questionable to return.

Gore went down after laying a block on Bobby Wagner. He's likely being evaluated for a concussion, so there's a chance that he is done for the day. Carlos Hyde will take over at running back until Gore is able to return.
