49ers RB Frank Gore (concussion, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 16. Gore is apparently on track to start against San Diego on Saturday, though he has yet to receive full clearance. Without Carlos Hyde vulturing carries, he could be in for a big workload. If he’s out, Alfonso Smith and Bruce Miller figure to form an ugly RBBC.
Running back Frank Gore did not participate in practice on Tuesday, as he arrived at the team facility after a visit to a doctor as part of the NFL’s protocol on concussions.
Gore must pass the designated steps in order to be available for the 49ers’ game Saturday night against the San Diego Chargers.
Gore did not play in the second half of the 49ers’ 17-7 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday after sustaining a concussion in the second quarter while blocking linebacker Bobby Wagner.
The story also said backup running back Carlos Hyde was also not seen on the field at the beginning of practice after sustaining right ankle and back injuries on a third-quarter play during Week 15. Right now, Alfonso Smith and Bruce Miller are the only other RBs on the 49ers roster. The 49ers play the Chargers on Saturday night so both backs lose a day as they try to get back on the field.
Gore never returned to the game and will now go through protocol. Carlos Hyde took over but was bent back awkwardly on a run and was seen limping on the sidelines. With tough games against San Diego and Arizona left on the schedule, a possible combo of Bruce Miller, Trey Millard and Alfonso Smith doesn't present an attractive fantasy option should Gore and Hyde not be able to play Week 16.

Hyde racked up 34 yards on three carries on his first professional drive, helping to set up a field goal as San Francisco took an early 3-0 lead.
Hyde’s gains were seven, 19 and eight yards, respectively. On the 19-yarder, a block from fullback Bruce Miller helped him get the corner off left end.
