Frank Gore rushed just eight times 36 yards and added four receptions for 20 yards versus the Giants in Week 6.
The 49ers had every intention of running the ball, but were forced to abandon that game plan after falling behind 17-3 early in the third quarter. Gore's best play may have been a block on Justin Tuck that turned a potential 15-yard loss on a Mario Manningham end-around to a 7-yard gain. Backup Kendall Hunter totaled 32 yards on five touches. Gore will be just a borderline RB2 option next week against Seattle's shut-down run defense.
