Running back Frank Gore sustained a right ankle sprain in the second quarter but remained in the game without much success.
Gore played all but three of the 49ers’ first-half offensive plays but saw considerable action on the sideline in the second half with Kendall Hunter getting the most action thus far of his rookie season. Coach Jim Harbaugh said Gore was removed because of the injury.
“I kind of tweaked and I couldn’t go the way I wanted to,” Gore said. “Yeah, I couldn’t be myself. Some of the runs, I couldn’t make the cut I wanted to make. Hopefully, I get better this week.”
When asked if he’d be able to play next week against the Philadelphia Eagles, Gore answered, “I can’t tell until tomorrow. See how I’m feeling.”
