Here is what Jim Harbaugh said Saturday afternoon about Frank Gore, courtesy of the 49ers.
This time last week, RB Frank Gore was obviously still in quite a bit of pain. Do you have a sense of where he is right now physically as far as his ribs?
“Not exactly. He looks good.”
The way he runs, he runs so hard and takes such a beating. Obviously, we know how highly you think of Frank. But, do you just take a step back and just realize how tough this guy is, what he goes through?
“Every day. Every day my admiration for Frank Gore as a football player, every time you think it’s as high as it can be then he finds another wrung on the ladder to go in my esteem. And then even more so as a person. He’s just one of the finest guys you ever want to be around. He’d do anything for the team. And is just a football player, in all senses of the word, phrase.”
