49ers' Frank Gore progressing, Carlos Hyde still out


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore returned to practice Thursday wearing a non-contact jersey as he continues to progress through the league's concussion protocol, reports the Sacramento Bee. Rookie running back Carlos Hyde remained sidelined with ankle and back injuries.

The 49ers host the Chargers on Saturday night. If Gore gets cleared by an independent neurologist and Hyde sits out, Gore could see a heavy workload. If neither plays, the 49ers' top two tailbacks would be Alfonso Smith and newly-signed Phillip Tanner.


49ers RB Carlos Hyde does not expect to play Week 16


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) 49ers rookie running back Carlos Hyde said that "barring a miracle," he does not expect to play Saturday against the Chargers, reports CSNBayArea.com. Hyde did say the MRI on his injured ankle came back with good news, though he wasn't specific.

Veteran running back Frank Gore could be in for a big workload if he gets cleared from his concussion. 


49ers RBs Frank Gore, Carlos Hyde sidelined again Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) 49ers running backs Frank Gore (concussion) and Carlos Hyde (ankle) missed practice for the second straight day Wednesday. Gore said he has no symptoms from the head injury he suffered Sunday, but he still must be cleared by an independent neurologist to play Saturday against San Diego, reports the Sacramento Bee.

Alfonso Smith is San Fran's No. 3 running back, and the team added former Cowboys running back Phillip Tanner on Wednesday.

If Gore and Hyde can't play, the 49ers would be at a major disadvantage. Gore has run for 804 yards and three touchdowns, while Hyde has rushed for 333 yards and four scores.


49ers RBs Frank Gore, Carlos Hyde skip practice Tuesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore was unable to practice and visited a specialist on Tuesday, as he continues to go through the league-mandated concussion protocol, per Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.

Gore was unable to play in the second half of San Francisco's 17-7 defeat to Seattle because of the head injury. Backup Carlos Hyde went down with an ankle injury in that game and was unable to practice Tuesday. Alfonso Smith is the team's No. 3 running back on the depth chart.

San Francisco is a 2 1/2-point favorite at home against San Diego on Saturday.


Jim Harbaugh updates status of injured running backs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh on Monday provided brief updates on injured running backs Frank Gore and Carlos Hyde. Harbaugh said Gore, who left Sunday's game with a concussion, said "he's feeling good. Good as can be expected."

Hyde exited with an ankle injury. "We're going to check today and see what the ankle looks like in terms of swelling," Harbaugh said.

San Fran plays the Chargers on Saturday.


49ers' Frank Gore downgraded to out due to concussion


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) San Francisco running back Frank Gore will not return Week 15 due to a concussion.

Gore injured himself making a block late in the second quarter. He went to the locker room early, and was evaluated for a concussion at halftime. At the start of the third quarter, the team ruled him out due to the injury. He gained 29 yards on 11 carries, inlcuding a 10 yard score, before leaving.


49ers' Frank Gore gets limited work Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) San Francisco running back Frank Gore received limited carries Week 14 against the Raiders.

Gore performed fairly well when he got the ball, but only carried the rock 12 times. He gained 63 yards, which was good for a 5.3 yards per carry average. Gore was not targeted in the passing game. Overall, San Francisco had a tough time getting anything going on offense, and that limited Gore's ability to take over the game on the ground.

Gore will take on the Seahawks Week 15. 


Frank Gore worth a shot this week


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2014) In a disappointing loss to the Seahawks last week in which his team spent most of the game trailing by multiple scores, 49ers running back Frank Gore didn't even have a chance to get going, rushing 10 times for 28 yards. But Week 14 is a whole new ballgame. The 49ers visit the 1-11 Raiders, which should be a gimme matchup, which should mean an early lead, which should mean plenty of opportunities to run the ball.

It's meant that for most running backs who've faced the Raiders this season, which is a big reason why they rank 27th against the run. They've allowed the second-most rushing attempts of any team, with only the 2-10 Titans behind them. The Raiders and Titans are tied for allowing the most Fantasy points per game to running backs.

A combined 164 yards and three touchdowns like the Rams' Tre Mason had against the Raiders last week might be too much to ask from Gore, but he had a two-game stretch against the Saints and Giants just a couple weeks ago in which he averaged 88.0 yards. Something similar, perhaps with a touchdown, wouldn't be at all surprising for him in Week 14.

Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank him 14th at the position for this week, which is a bit more aggressive than I'd like, but he's certainly top 20.


49ers' Frank Gore, Carlos Hyde sputter in loss vs. Seahawks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) The 49ers couldn't find much success on the ground in Thursday's 19-3 loss to the Seahawks, with running back Frank Gore leading the way with 10 carries for just 28 yards and an eight-yard reception in Week 13.

Rookie Carlos Hyde was the more explosive of the two backs Thursday, rushing for 19 yards on five carries while catching all three of his targets for a team-high 38 receiving yards, but the Seahawks defense virtually shut down the entire 49ers offense on Thanksgiving. The pair will look to bounce back in a much better matchup against the Raiders in Week 14.


Frank Gore among 49ers probables active Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) Six players listed as probable for Week 13 on the 49ers' final injury report are active Thursday, including running backs Frank Gore (knee) and Bruce Miller (shoulder), safeties Eric Reid (ankle) and Raymond Ventrone (groin), defensive tackle Justin Smith (back) and wide receiver Brandon Lloyd (quad).

Gore struggled in Week 12, managing just 36 yards on 13 carries, but he wasn't thought to be in danger of missing the key NFC West battle.


49ers list Week 13 injury report


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) The 49ers released their Week 13 injury report Wednesday, and they listed tight end Derek Carrier (foot), tackle Anthony Davis (concussion) and defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey  (forearm) as out for Thursday's game against the Seahawks.

Cornerback Tramaine Brock (hamstring), wide receiver Bruce Ellington (ankle) and tight Vance McDonald (back) were all listed as questionable, while running back Frank Gore (knee), wide receiver Brandon Lloyd (quadricep), defensive end Ray McDonald (knee), running back Bruce Miller(shoulder), safety Eric Reid (ankle), defensive end Justin Smith (back) and safety Raymond Ventrone (groin) were all listed as probable.


Redskins hold 49ers' Frank Gore and Carlos Hyde in check


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) The 49ers struggled to get any of their running game going during a Week 12 win against Washington.

Running back Frank Gore struggled to produce, rushing for 36 yards on 13 attempts which also included a lost fumble.

Running back Carlos Hyde scored the lone rushing touchdown for the 49ers on a 4-yard run late in the fourth quarter. Sans the touchdown, Hyde was also unproductive with 16 rushing yards on seven carries to go along with the first lost fumble of his career.

The 49ers next play Thursday against Seattle.


49ers RB Frank Gore totals 114 yards in Week 11 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore rushed for a team-high 95 yards on 19 carries during a 16-10 win Week 11 at N.Y. Giants. He added two catches for 19 yards to finish with 114 total yards in the win.

Gore came close to his first 100-yard rushing performance in five games. He still has totaled more than 100 rushing yards just twice this season, with his last 100-yard game coming in Week 5.

The veteran running back did lose a fumble in Sunday's win on the opening drive, which led to a 19-yard touchdown catch by Giants tight end Larry Donnell. The 49ers are back in action Week 12 vs. Washington.


49ers' final Week 11 injury report: Gore, McDonald, Reid probable


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) The 49ers have ruled Jimmie Ward (foot), Ian Williams (fibula) out for Week 11 against the Giants. Tramaine Brock (hamstring), Bruce Ellington (ankle) and Dan Skuta (ankle) were all deemed questionable.

The following players were labeled probable for Sunday: Chris Borland (shoulder), Frank Gore (hip), Ray McDonald (knee), Eric Reid (ankle) and Justin Smith (rest).


Frank Gore helps lead the 49ers to Week 10 victory over Saints


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore ran for 81 yards and one touchdown during the 49ers’ Week 10 win over the Saints.

Gore received the majority of the rushing attempts for the 49ers. He had 23 rushing attempts to go along with one reception for 2 yards on one target.

This was Gore’s best performance since running for 107 yards in Week 5 against Kansas City.

He was listed as probable with a hip injury for the Week 10 matchup.

The 49ers travel to New York to take on the Giants in Week 11.


49ers RB Frank Gore one of two probables for Week 10


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore (hip) and nose tackle Ian Williams (shin) were the only players labeled probable for Sunday's clash against the Saints in Week 10.

Tramaine Brock (toe), Brandon Lloyd (hamstring) and Quinton Dial (eye) were all limited participants in Friday's practice and ruled questionable. Dan Skuta (ankle) and Patrick Willis (toe) were unable to practice, but were still deemed questionable for Sunday.


Frank Gore's struggles could continue


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore has just 9 Fantasy points over his last three games, and has a somewhat tough matchup on the way for Week 10 as he tries to stop his skid against the Saints this Sunday.

Gore has 107 yards on just 2.7 yards per carry against the Saints, who have done a good job of slowing down opposing running games recently. The Saints are allowing just 2.4 yards per carry to running backs over the last four games, with a single-game high in that stretch of 68 yards on 17 carries.

The Saints have been vulnerable to pass-catching backs, as Eddie Lacy's 123-yard showing on eight receptions two weeks ago shows. However, Gore has been a non-factor as a receiver, with just one game of more than one reception under his belt this season.

If Gore can't get going in the running game, this could be another long day for his Fantasy owners. He still gets enough work that it is hard to sit him, but Gore is hardly inspiring much confidence. Consider him more of a low-end starting Fantasy option for Week 10. 


49ers RB Frank Gore held to 49 rushing yards in Week 9 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore managed just 49 yards on 14 carries in his team's 13-10 loss to the Rams in Week 9, adding one reception for nine yards while failing to reach the end zone.

Gore has been bottled up on the ground in recent weeks, failing to top 2.5 yards per carry in either of his previous two games before posting a 3.5 yards-per-carry mark in Week 9. Sunday's reception was also his first during the three-game stretch, with two of those games coming against the Rams. He'll attempt to deliver his first big performance in more than a month when he faces the Saints in New Orleans in Week 10.


Frank Gore, Carlos Hyde held in check in 49ers' Week 7 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore rushed for just 20 yards on nine carries and failed to haul in his only target in his team's 42-17 loss to the Broncos in Week 7.

The 49ers fell behind quickly as the Broncos jumped out to a 14-0 first-quarter lead, and that left San Francisco's running back out to dry during a failed comeback effort. Backup Carlos Hyde rushed for 15 yards on his three carries while adding eight yards on two receptions. The pair will head into the Week 8 bye on a down note, but the running game will look to get back on track in Week 9 against the Rams.


Colin Kaepernick becoming more trustworthy


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/2014) With his team trailing for the entire first half, Colin Kaepernick let it fly Week 6 at St. Louis and put up numbers on par with some of the elite passers in the game as a result. He threw for 300 yards for just the third time in his career and had three touchdown passes for just the fourth time.

It gave you a sense of what his upside could be if the 49ers opened up their offense a little more, but with such a strong defense, they rarely have reason to do that.

Still, with Frank Gore aging, Kaepernick himself has been more of a weapon for them this year, throwing for at least 200 yards every week. While this was his first game with more than 20 Fantasy points in standard CBSSports.com leagues (in part because it was just his third game with multiple touchdowns), he has at least scored double-digit Fantasy points every week, making him the seventh-best player at the position to date. His rushing ability keeps him consistent.

My assessment of Kaepernick hasn't really changed with this performance. He's a quarterback you can feel comfortable starting every week, but efforts like this one where he sets your team apart will be few and far between.


Frank Gore pulled for Carlos Hyde in critical situations


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) 49ers veteran running back Frank Gore was replaced by rookie Carlos Hyde at several critical moments in Monday's win over the Rams. Midway through the fourth quarter, Hyde failed on three consecutive carries inside the St. Louis 2 while Gore watched.

Then, with the 49ers needing a first down to run out the clock, it was Hyde not Gore getting the carries.

Gore finished with 38 yards on 16 carries (2.4 ypc). The lowlight came when he failed to convert 4th-and-1 with 4:19 left in the game. Gore nearly had a 27-yard catch, but officials ruled he came down out of bounds. Hyde ran 11 times for 14 yards (1.3 ypc) and caught his only target for 1 yard.

The 49ers visit the Broncos in Week 7.


Frank Gore reps scaled back by 49ers as part of plan


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/11/2014) The comparative lack of rushing attempts for 49ers featured back Frank Gore this season might have raised a few eyebrows, but it was part of the team's master plan, according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman.

"We don't want to just ride that stallion all day, every day," he told CBSBayArea.com. "There's a point of diminishing returns at some point. That's almost true for any player at that position. Who gets hit more than running backs?"

Gore has been his typical productive self with 365 yards on 77 carries, but that marks the second-fewest attempts through five games in his career. The only exception was 2009, but he was dealing with an ankle injury early that season.

One difference is the presence of promising rookie running back Carlos Hyde, who enjoyed his finest effort in Week 5 with 43 yards on 10 carries.


Frank Gore goes over 100 yards for second straight game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore hammered his way to a second straight 100-yard rushing game, piling up 107 yards on 18 carries in the win over the Chiefs. These were Gore's first back-to-back 100-yard efforts since he strung five together in 2011.

Gore, 31, is the oldest 49er to rush for 100 yards in two straight games since 1960. Gore added a 1-yard reception.

Gore, who's averaging 4.7 yards per carry, visits the Rams in Week 6 on Monday Night Football.


Michael Crabtree, Frank Gore among cleared 49ers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) A slew of 49ers who were on the injury report are active for Week 5 against the Chiefs.

Wideout Michael Crabtree (foot) and running back Frank Gore (back) head the list and are joined by safety Antoine Bethea (ankle), tight end Vance McDonald (knee), safety Eric Reid (hamstring), defensive tackle Tony Jerod-Eddie (shoulder), nose tackle Ian Williams (ankle) and punter Andy Lee (ankle).


49ers release final Week 5 injury report


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) The 49ers listed center Marcus Martin (knee) as doubtful on the team's final injury report for Sunday's Week 5 game against the Chiefs.

Six 49ers were listed as questionable to play, including cornerback Tramaine Brock (toe), offensive tackle Anthony Davis (knee, ankle), tight ends Vernon Davis (back) and Vance McDonald (knee), safety Eric Reid (hamstring) and nose tackle Ian Williams (ankle).

Six additional players were listed as probable, including safety Antoine Bethea (ankle), wide receiver Michael Crabtree (foot), running back Frank Gore (back), punter Andy Lee (right ankle) and defensive ends Tony Jerod-Eddie (shoulder) and Justin Smith (not injury related).
