The San Francisco 49ers continue to impress this season as they managed to beat a pretty solid New York Giants team yesterday. Not every thing went perfectly however, RB Frank Gore suffered a knee injury during the game and sat out majority of the second-half. Gore doesn’t appear to be to concerned about the injury and mentioned that he could have returned but was held out by the teams coaching staff, per Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.
“I’ll be fine,” he said. “I could have played, but [running backs] coach [Tom] Rathman didn’t want me to play. Be smart — he said we’ve got a long season.”
Gore entered Week 10 with an ankle injury so there’s a good chance that Kendall Hunter will seem more action come next week. San Francisco will be up against the Cardinals in Week 11.
