San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan was among those hit with a $100,000 fine for not properly wearing their face masks on Sunday. The NFL also fined the team an additional $250,000, as the league works to ensure that coaches and other sideline staff are showing that they are adequately protecting themselves from COVID-19. On Wednesday, a reporter asked Shanahan about the hefty fine. "I'm obviously disappointed," Shanahan responded. "I mean, no one ever wants to have to spend that kind of money.

The San Francisco 49ers could see a healthy dose of Frank Gore on Sunday when they travel to MetLife Stadium to play the New York Jets. The running back remains the 49ers' all-time rushing leader. He started his career with the team, played 10 seasons with San Francisco, and remains a fan favorite. Gore even has admirers on the current 49ers roster. Running back Raheem Mostert once asked former Niners tackle Joe Staley about Gore. Staley and Gore played eight seasons together. "I asked him, 'What does it take for a guy like me to be like Frank Gore?'" Mostert shared this past offseason. "Because Frank Gore is my idol.
