According to FOX Sports' John Czarnecki, "it sounds like (Frank) Gore will be inactive due to a bad ankle."
This chimes with Saturday's report from CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco, who said it's not even a given that Gore (ankle, questionable) would be active Sunday. Kendall Hunter is in line to carry the rock if Gore is indeed sidelined, making for a nice fantasy play against Philadelphia's 30th ranked run defense. Even if Gore suits up, Hunter could see 10-to-15 touches.
Those ankle injuries have a way of lingering, and Gore just isn't getting it done. I just picked up Hunter because I think SF will find ways to ignite their running game today with hunter, and if he performs, I think he gets a fair share of touches the rest of the way.
