Frank Gore will be “fine” according to 49ers head coach Mike Singletary. The 49ers starting running back nicked up his ankle in the team’s 23-10 victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
“I’m glad to get another win under our belts,” Singletary said in his Monday press conference with the Bay Area media.
Singletary was asked a number of questions on the 49ers most recent game as well as their upcoming road game this Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, who are also 2-0.
“It’s going to be a tremendous challenge and we look forward to going there,” he said.
Singletary was also asked to compare this year’s 2-0 team to the 49ers 2007 team that also won its first two regular season games.
“I don’t want to compare the two teams,” he said. “What’s important about this team is that there’s tremendous character on this team. All of the other things before now – that’s not really important to me.”
What’s important to Singletary is seeing improved play from his players on a weekly basis. At the current moment, a portion of his focus has been devoted to the offensive line. After applying gentile pressure on the unit throughout the week, Singletary said he was pleased with the improvement the group made against the Seahawks.
“They played better and they played more physical,” he said. “They did work as a unit and that’s important.”
Singletary said the right tackle position will continue to be shared by Adam Snyder and Tony Pashos.
Pashos did “a pretty decent job” and Snyder “certainly played better” according to Singletary.
-Singletary is not worried about the lack of production from second-year wideout Josh Morgan. “It will come,” he said of Morgan’s time to breakout. Singletary also praised Morgan’s blocking which allowed Gore to be so successful.
-Singletary on Gore’s career-best yards from scrimmage performance: “I enjoyed it while it was going on. I enjoyed every bit of it.”
