Niners running back Frank Gore was named the NFC offensive player of the week on Tuesday, despite missing the final seven minutes of the 49ers’ win against the Seahawks with a right ankle sprain.
Coach Mike Singletary said he is not sure if Gore will practice later today. If Gore does practice, it will be on a limited basis. Gore, meanwhile, said he feels fine and fully expects to be ready for this week’s game against the Vikings.
More news and notes. . . .
–Singletary said the team will see how receiver Brandon Jones practices this week before making a decision whether he’ll play Sunday. Jones has not played since Aug. 6, when he sustained a broken right shoulder blade.
–Linebacker Ahmad Brooks dressed for his first practice since undergoing arthroscopic surgery to remove a bone fragment from his knee after the 49ers’ third exhibition game.
