Frank Gore: Downplays Bruised Ribs
Update: Gore insisted Friday his bruised ribs will be "all right" after playing Thursday night through the most pain of his 109-game career, the Sacramento Bee reports.

Recommendation: "The X-ray was looking good, and I'll take it one day at a time," Gore said. In his favor, extra rest will be afforded to Gore as the 49ers don't play again until Monday night when they take on Arizona. Gore rushed for a season-high 131 yards on 16 carries in Thursday's 13-6 win over the Seattle Seahawks. It was on one of his five receptions, however, that his left ribs took a hard hit from cornerback Brandon Browner. That came with six minutes left before halftime. Gore went on to carry the ball 10 times for 92 yards in the second half, and he added two receptions to finish with a season-high 51 receiving yards. Gore said he struggled to catch his breath after long runs, and he eventually was relieved late by Kendall Hunter. Gore's 601 rushing yards rank him fifth in the NFL while his 5.8 yards per carry ranks him second in the league just behind Buffalo's C.J. Spiller. Obviously check on his status throughout the week, but if healthy, Gore is a must! -start against a Cardinals defense that allows an average of 120.9 rushing yards per game.
