San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore dodged the injury bug once again and appears to be fine after he used his post-game to check on his injured ribs following the Week 10 24-24 tie against the St. Louis Rams according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.
Gore initially suffered the injury on Oct. 18 in the home win against the Seattle Seahawks. Though the injury was significant enough to land him on the injury report, he hasn’t missed any game time and has been a full participant in every practice since then. All signs point to him practicing on Thursday in preparation for the Week 11 contest against the Chicago Bears on Monday night.
Gore leads the Niners’ top-ranked rushing attack with 753 yards on 140 carries, amassing a 5.4 yards per carry average and adding five touchdowns. The 49ers are 6-2-1 and will host the Chicago Bears.
