Frank Gore who suffered a sprained ankle against the Jets and did not return had x-rays on his hurt ankle which were negative. It is still uncertain whether Gore will be able to even practice this week let alone play in Miami on Sunday. Gore is from Miami and attended the University of Miami so you have to think he will try his hardest to get out on the field. If Gore cannot go on Sunday expect DeShaun Foster to get a bulk of the carries while sharing the load with Michael Robinson and rookie Thomas Clayton who is on the practice squad and was impressive in the preseason. The 49ers without Gore on Sunday will make it harder to defeat the Dolphins especially with the Fins in a three-way tie for first place in the AFC East. It is a possibility the winner of the AFC East will be the only team going to the playoffs with the depth of great teams in the AFC so the Fins will come out shooting. The 49ers have a chance to win without Gore but a lot will fall on Foster to do his best impression of Gore to have an effective running that sets up the pass like they did against the Jets.
