Gore expects to be just fine for Sunday’s game

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.
