Frank Gore Injury Update: 49ers Running Back Likely To Play Next Week

The San Francisco 49ers picked up a huge win over the New York Giants on Sunday to improve to 8-1 on the season, but for most of the second half they were without their star running back Frank Gore.

Gore was in and out of the game with ankle and knee issues, and for the majority of the second half was largely replaced by Kendall Hunter. According to Gore, the 49ers RB coach Tom Rathman held him back in the second half as a preventative measure, knowing there was a lot of game left to play and the team certainly didn't want Gore aggravating any nagging problems. Gore only came in for a handful of plays after halftime.

According to 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh, Gore will be able to play next week. Luckily, the Niners don't return to practice until Wednesday. More information will be available once the practice participation report is released Wednesday afternoon.
