Coach Jim Harbaugh said on Thursday that Gore is passing through the concussion protocol and is on pace to play Saturday night against the San Diego Chargers. Gore missed the entire second half of Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks with a concussion.

Fantasy Impact:

Gore may see a bigger than usual workload with Carlos Hyde out. Alfonso Smith should serve as Gore's primary backup.

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back, probable) took full practice reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is probable for Week 16.

Cardinals RB Kerwynn Williams (knee, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 16. Williams has seen 58 percent of the touches in the last two weeks. He’s not an appealing start against Seattle (#17 in RB aFPA), but the game is at home and the Seahawks have yielded an average of 94 rushing yards on the road (vs. 82 yards at home). Owners in a bind could do a lot worse.

Carlos Hyde, Frank Gore don't practice for 49ers

CSN Bay Area - [Full Article]

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.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Frank Gore concussed vs. Seattle

ESPN - [Full Article]

San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore left Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks late in the second quarter with a concussion.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back, probable) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice and is probable for Week 15. No worries here. Lynch has averaged 132 total yards and 2.0 TD in his last three regular season home games against the 49ers. He also racked up 109 rushing yards and a TD against the 49ers in last year’s playoffs.
