Rosenhaus says Frank Gore is “100% healthy and fully recovered”

49ers running back Frank Gore’s 2010 season ended in Week Twelve due to a fractured right hip. Soon after the injury, NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reported that the hip fracture “shouldn’t be a long-term issue.”

To this point, all indications point to La Canfora’s report holding strong. Gore did not need surgery, and on Friday evening his agent provided a positive update on the Niners’ franchise back.

“I watched Frank Gore work out and he is 100% healthy and fully recovered from his hip injury,” Drew Rosenhaus tweeted. “He’s never looked better.”

The 49ers have developed solid depth behind Gore just in case. Second-year back Anthony Dixon showed promise and power off the bench as a rookie, and the team used a fourth-round pick on small-but-versatile prospect Kendall Hunter from Oklahoma State.

Regardless, Gore will continue to be the Niners’ offensive centerpiece as they break in rookie quarterback Colin Kaepernick behind underwhelming projected starter Alex Smith.

Though injuries have limited him to just one career 16-game season, Gore is averaging a robust 4.57 yards per carry over the past two seasons. He also excels as a receiving and blocking back.

    Great news. On a lighter note I was almost murdered by unemployed football players today.

    Insults from Viking fans? Is Minnesota even part of the US?

    If Drew Rosenhaus says it, it must be true.

  5. pooflingingmonkey says: May 27, 2011 10:25 PM

    What else is Rosenhaus going to say?

    “Members of the Press, my client Frank Gore, having suffered a very serious knee injury last year, has rehabilitated himself to about 65% of his former ability. Thank you.”

    I expect nothing different from Drew as we must remember that Drew is an agent, lawyer and went to Duke. I would not believe a thing that smiling guy said.

    I finally understand why the Mormons passed on ‘Colorado’ for ‘beautiful and cultured’ Utah… I’d rather live near a Great Salt Lake than ignorant pricks too.

    Well of course he’s at 100%…he hasn’t stepped onto an NFL field yet. The first time he does, SNAP, down to 85% (although his 85 is better than a lot of guys at 100).

    *I’m even a Gore fan from his days at Miami, before the need to flame me arises lol.

    Let’s hope the entire backfield doesn’t join the ministry, citing how the “NFL ruins” players.

    Next question. He got famous for that witty little line. The question that got him started on that path was posed by a local reporter. It was (roughly) “What have you done for TO since becoming his agent, other than get him sent home from training camp, and not get him a new deal?” There are only two people I hate in this world, and he’s both of them.

    You’re talking about COLORADO, where “denverhighrize” is mostly likely from? Guess Dikings fans can’t read either.

    Minnesota has done nothing for the world, oh target is based out o that crummy city. The bay area has brought INternet technology to this world, numerous championships and brought some sort of significance to this world. What has Minny done sports wise nothing, move the vikes to lA get them out of that crap hole please. Garbage useless city, please never bring up the bay area, you aren’t on our level and seriously are you even in america? You have added no value to the uS.

    Good for Frank. He’s such a good back, and just goes about his business like a pro. Hope he truly is 100%

    My agent says you should give me a big contract.

    How did a story about Frank Gore get twisted into a discussion about Colorado, Viking fans, and illegal immigrants???
