49ers coach Harbaugh expects RB Gore to play at Philadelphia on Sunday

49ers coach Jim Harbaugh expects running back Frank Gore to play this week at Philadelphia despite a sprained right ankle that limited him in Sunday’s win at Cincinnati.

Harbaugh, whose 2-1 Niners lead the NFC West, is game-planning this week as if Gore will start against the Eagles. San Francisco is practicing in Youngstown, Ohio, to avoid a return trip to the West Coast before facing Philadelphia.

“Frank’s status, in my mind right now, Frank is good to go,” Harbaugh said in a conference call. “We’ll plan, we’ll scheme and prepare for this game with Frank, along with the rest of the players on this team.”

Harbaugh said Gore was walking without a boot Monday and also referred to rookie Kendall Hunter as “the backup tailback” — leaving little question that Gore remains the guy, for now at least. Hunter ran 7 yards for the game’s only touchdown with 3:59 left Sunday.
