Frank Gore Feeling Better

Posted by Alex Espinoza on October 22, 2012 – 5:49 PM

One day at a time, Frank Gore and his bruised ribs are getting better.

Gore suffered the injury in the second quarter of Thursday’s 13-6 win against the Seahawks, when Seattle cornerback Brandon Browner speared Gore in the back after he caught a short pass. Gore would still finish the game with a season-high 131 yards rushing and 51 yards receiving, leading the 49ers to victory.

Sitting at his locker on Monday afternoon, the 49ers rushing king said his ribs are feeling “a lot better.”

“Just taking it one day at a time,” Gore said. “But I feel good. I should be all right.”

Gore took part in Monday’s practice, but said he’s not quite ready for contact yet. He’s also benefitting from the team’s schedule, as the 49ers have 11 days between last week’s matchup against Seattle and the upcoming Monday night showdown at Arizona in Week 8.

In the four days since he was hit by Browner, Gore said the pain has softened.

“Little moments here and there,” Gore said. “When I first did it, it was constant. Every time I breathed, I could feel it. I feel a lot better.”

Jim Harbaugh and the coaching staff are also taking advantage of the extra time between games, as the players have Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday off. But that’s not to say members of the 49ers won’t be at the team headquarters staying busy.

“That’s the thing about this team,” safety Dashon Goldson said. “Nobody’s really off, off. Those off-days that we have, a lot of guys are in here getting treatment and working out, watching film.”

Gore was also pleased to find out that his game-used gloves and cleats, plus a game ball from the record-setting offensive effort against Buffalo in Week 5 have been received by the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. The 49ers became the first team in NFL history to rush for more than 300 yards (311) and pass for more than 300 (310) in the same game, while setting a single-game franchise record for yardage (621).

Gore said it’s his first contribution to the Hall of Fame, but hopefully it’s not his last.

“That’s great,” Gore said.

    Just remember Frank Gore’s career started with 2 separate season ending ligament tears at Miami. A lot of experts said he couldn’t make it in the NFL & would never be the same after his injuries. Proof that hard work can overcome.

    He’s the guy I most want to see clutching a Lombardi in a rain of confetti before he’s done.

    Frank is the best all-around back in the NFL. He can run it up the middle or around the ends. He can catch the ball in space or on a screen. He can block on a blitz for his quarterback or block for a receiver down-field. He does it all and he does it very, very, well.
