The San Francisco 49ers may have won the game Monday night against the Arizona Cardinals, but they lost something a lot more valuable. Specifically, Frank Gore left the game with a fractured hip.
While nothing is official yet, we don’t see how he could avoid landing on injured reserve.
“49ers will further evaluate Frank Gore (fractured right hip) before deciding whether to place him on IR. Promotion of DeShawn Wynn possible,” beat writer Matt Maiocco tweets.
Brian Westbrook was brilliant as his replacement last night, racking up 136 yards and a touchdown. He looked fresh for the first time in about three years.
“I felt good,” Westbrook said. “I felt very young. I was fresh.”
It looks like it will be him and Anthony Dixon in some sort of committee moving forward. Gore apologizes in advance if he screwed your fantasy football team.
