San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore has been nominated for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week award. To vote for Gore, visit this link. He goes up against Steven Jackson of the St. Louis Rams and LeSean McCoy of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Gore had 31 carries for 134 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' 20-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns.

Gore has rushed for 125 yards in four straight games and has scored a touchdown in each of those games. Both are career firsts for Gore.

On Sunday, Gore passed Roger Craig for second in rushing on the all-time franchise ranks. Gore has grown close to Craig in the past couple years. 

"He (Craig) called me last night," Gore said on Monday. "He's happy for me. Me and Roger have gotten really close the last two years. When I got injured, he called me a lot during the offseason, telling me what I had to do and that I'd be fine.

"It's big. Especially with a guy who did great things in this league and this organization, I respect him a whole lot."

Gore won the award two weeks ago for his performance against the Lions. He had 141 rushing yards and a touchdown.
