It looks like from the sound of it the Niners may have RB Frank Gore in the lineup this weekend when the team plays the Raiders:
49ers coach Mike Singletary hinted that tailback Frank Gore might make his exhibition-season debut Saturday against the Raiders according to Carl Steward of the San Jose Mercury News. “It’s possible,” Singletary said Tuesday. “I think it comes down to timing. When you have a very good runner, you want to be careful. But at the same time, you don’t want to limit him too much.” Gore has been healthy throughout training camp but sat out the first two exhibitions for precautionary reasons. Singletary said he would like his young, restructured offensive line to get some experience with Gore – however scant – under game conditions before the Sept. 12 opener.
