Frank Gore: Harbaugh weighs in on Niners' RB situation

Coach Jim Harbaugh says the 49ers' selection of RB LaMichael James with the No. 61 pick is not a reflection on Frank Gore.

"My God, no," Harbaugh said. Harbaugh also claimed the 49ers could enter the season with six running backs; Brandon Jacobs, Kendall Hunter, Anthony Dixon and Rock Cartwright joining Gore and James. The reality is Dixon's roster spot is in grave danger, while Jacobs is no longer assured of cracking the final 53. Cartwright is expected to serve as a special-teams dynamo. James will cut into Hunter's snaps much more than Gore's.
