Gore to be sidelined three weeks

Mercury News - [Full Article]

If the 49ers are going to rebound from their tough final-seconds defeat in Minnesota, they're going to have to do it without running back Frank Gore.
Gore will miss at least three weeks after MRI results revealed Monday that he suffered a right-ankle strain and a right-foot sprain on the team's first play from scrimmage Sunday against the Vikings. The 49ers announced Gore's status via an e-mail sent Monday night and did not make any team officials available for comment.
Earlier Monday, coach Mike Singletary said at his weekly press conference that the injury was unrelated to the ankle sprain Gore suffered against Seattle two weeks ago and noted, "It is not believed to be serious.''
If the three-week prognosis holds true, Gore will miss just two games. The 49ers play host to St. Louis and Atlanta the next two weeks before a bye on Oct. 18. They play at Houston on Oct. 25.
