Gore’s injury not serious; will return on Tuesday night

Sep 17, 2007 at 2:46 PM--


According to Mike Nolan, the team did not suffer any serious injuries on Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. Fans were concerned for running back Frank Gore when he left the field late in the game and appeared to be injured. Nolan said that it was a simple leg strain and that none of the injuries to Gore or wide receiver Darrell Jackson were likely to prevent any of the players from playing this weekend against the Steelers. Jackson had tweaked his back. Gore and Jackson may not practice on Wednesday.

Nolan said that he would meet with Frank Gore once he returns Tuesday night from his mother's wake and funeral to see where he is at. Running backs coach Bishop Harris, fullback Moran Norris and tackle Jonas Jennings traveled with Gore after the game on Sunday.

On Wednesday morning, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR. A former NFL running back and 49ers fan favorite, Frank Gore, was with Lynch in team CEO Jed York's suite this past Sunday during the team's 30-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He remains close with the York family and continues to be a big fan of his former organization. Gore was treated to watching a 79-yard, one-touchdown rushing performance from Deebo Samuel — a wide receiver. That came on just eight attempts, meaning the receiver averaged nearly 10 yards per carry. Gore believes Samuel is so impressive that the third-year wideout is good enough to be a great running back. "He loves Deebo as a running back," Lynch said. "He probably feels that if we
