Frank Gore RB SF 14 Days
Frank Gore (ankle) has been limited in practice this week.
Gore carried the ball 13 times for 31 yards in last Monday night's win over the Redskins and played just 35-of-61 snaps. It's likely he tweaked the ankle in the first half. Gore should be fine for Sunday's tilt against the Rams. He rushed for 153 yards and a score in Week 4 versus St. Louis and is an RB1.
Frank Gore RB SF 17 Days
Frank Gore rushed 13 times for 31 yards in Monday night's Week 12 win over the Redskins.
Gore was targeted two times in the passing game, catching one for three yards. The 49ers employed a rotation at the running back spot for much of the night, getting Kendall Hunter and LaMichael James some snaps. James didn't register a touch, but he played a handful of snaps. Hunter rushed eight times. Gore didn't appear to be injured, so the 49ers may have just been limiting his reps in preparation for the stretch run. He gets the Rams at home in Week 13. Gore rushed for a season-best 153 yards and one touchdown against St. Louis in Week 4. The Rams have been playing better defense of late, but Gore will be an RB1.
Frank Gore RB SF 25 Days
Frank Gore rushed 13 times for 48 yards in San Francisco's Week 11 loss to the Saints, adding two catches for eight yards.
Gore could have had a third catch - and potential 79-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter - but committed a brutal drop on 2nd-and-9 from San Francisco's own 21-yard line. Interestingly, Gore touched the ball just once in the final period even though San Francisco entered the session leading 17-14, and moved ahead 20-14 with 13:27 remaining. Gore has now been held below 100 yards rushing in four consecutive games, though today was the first time since Week 2 he didn't manage at least 80 yards on the ground. With the whole 49ers offense likely to fare better next Monday night against the Redskins, Gore will remain in the RB1 conversation for Week 12.
