Gore says he still has headache from concussion

Running back Frank Gore said today he still has a “bad” headache from a concussion sustained late in Monday night’s game against the Cardinals.

Gore did not practice Wednesday, and he is not expected to practice today, either. The 49ers are scheduled to practice from 1:45 to 3:45 p.m. The 49ers listed Gore’s condition as “neck” on Wednesday’s official injury report.


When asked on what play he sustained the concussion, Gore said, “On that play J-Hill caught the ball. I tried to crack back on No. 56 (Cardinals defender Chike Okeafor). We hit head-to-head.”


Gore said the last time he sustained a concussion was in a 2006 game against the Lions. Gore rushed for 159 yards – the second-highest of his career – in that game.


If Gore is unable to play, the 49ers would likely go with backup DeShaun Foster as the featured back. Gore ranks third in the NFL with 1,045 yards from scrimmage. He has 728 yards rushing on 159 carries (4.6 average) and has 33 receptions for 317 yards.
