Frank Gore being evaluated for head injury vs. Seahawks
Frank Gore was forced out of Sunday’s game against the Seahawks, and went to the locker room to be evaluated for a head injury.
Frank Gore went to the San Francisco 49ers’ locker room Sunday to be evaluated for a head injury suffered in the second quarter against the Seattle Seahawks. He took a hard hit while blocking, and remained on the ground for several moments before getting up and jogging off the field. Gore is questionable to return.
Gore left the game after carrying a heavy load. He already has 11 carries and a touchdown, though he has managed just 29 yards on the ground. The 49ers lead 7-3 at halftime.
If Gore is forced to miss extended action, the 49ers would rely on Carlos Hyde in the running game. Hyde is off to a good start Sunday, with 45 yards on just three carries.
Gore struggled with injuries early in his career, but has become a workhorse for the 49ers in recent years. At 31 years old, he will likely fall shy of 1,000 yards rushing this season for the first time since 2010.
