Aug 10, 2022 at 9:16 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers' all-time leading rusher, retired running back Frank Gore, has been charged with simple assault related to a domestic violence incident, per the Atlantic City, N.J., police. News of the incident was reported by Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle after being reported by TMZ.

"Gore, 39, was charged after police were dispatched to the Tropicana Atlantic City at 8:11 a.m. on July 31," wrote Branch. "The alleged victim, a 28-year-old woman from Miami, was speaking with hotel security when they arrived. The woman did not exhibit signs of injury and a complaint was not filed that day. Gore was charged after a resulting investigation.

"A simple assault charge in New Jersey carries up to six months in prison and a fine of $1,000. Gore is due for a hearing in mid-October, TMZ reported. Gore's longtime agent, Drew Rosenhaus, did not immediately respond to a request for comment."

Gore rushed for 11,073 yards through 10 seasons with San Francisco. His 16,000 career rushing yards rank third all-time in NFL history, with only Emmitt Smith (18,355) and Walter Payton (16,726) ranked above him.

The 49ers announced that Gore would become the 31st member in franchise history to be inducted into the Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. San Francisco 49ers Hall of Fame. That is set to take place during the 2022 season.

Gore signed a one-day contract with the 49ers on June 2, officially retiring with the team that drafted him in the third round of the 2005 NFL Draft.

Trey Lance went down late in the first quarter of the San Francisco 49ers' 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks. It was an injury so concerning that the second-year quarterback couldn't make it off the field on his own. He tried to get up, but pressure on his right leg, and immediately went back down to the turf. There was a great deal of concern from his teammates for Lance as he was carted off the field and into the locker room for further tests. The 49ers later announced that Lance was ruled out due to an ankle injury. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Lance's season may be over. The quarterback is expected to require surgery, likely ending his season. So it will probably be Jimmy Garoppolo's job moving
