49ers Vs. Redskins Injury Report: Frank Gore Suffers Ankle Sprain

The big injury news following the 49ers 19-11 victory over the Washington Redskins is that Frank Gore suffered an ankle sprain in the second quarter. Gore was able to finish out the victory and go over 100 yards for the fifth straight game, but it remains an injury to keep an eye on over the next few days.

Gore dealt with an ankle sprain earlier this season against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was extremely limited in practice through the rest of that week and the 49ers started backup running back Kendall Hunter the following week against the Philadelphia Eagles. Gore came off the bench and actually had his first 100-yard rushing game of the season, but the team felt Hunter deserved the start since he handled all the first team snaps that week.

Hunter himself is dealing with a dislocated finger, although there is no word on whether it is a serious injury. Anthony Dixon would handle the snaps if both Gore and Hunter were limited in practice. The other injury of note saw Braylon Edwards suffer a bit of a shoulder bruise. He had x-rays and seems to be fine, but he could also be a bit limited in practice this week.
