Running back Frank Gore is scheduled to practice today when the 49ers hit the field from 1:45 to 3:45 p.m. today. He said he’s happy and feeling normal.
UPDATE (5:17 p.m.): Frank Gore just entered the press trailer with a 49ers PR representative. Gore told reporters he jammed his neck while making a block in Monday’s game, and he is convinced he did not sustain a concussion.

The most talked-about 45 seconds of the 49ers’ season occurred Monday night. And that period of time will continue to reverberate through the franchise for quite a while.
