No plans to elevate Sheets

The Sheets gonna hit the fan when you read this but .... the 49ers say they have no plans to elevate fan favorite Kory Sheets from the practice squad this week. That seemed to be a possibility yesterday when it was learned that Frank Gore could miss the next two games with an ankle injury. But the team is content with the two running backs it has - Glen Coffee and Michael Robinson. I expect Coffee to take over Gore's workload and for Robinson to play the role of Coffee this week. Adding Sheets to the active roster would force the 49ers to release a player already on the roster.

The Saturday Q&A I used to do has been replaced by a Wednesday live chat. Questions about the size of Michael Crabtree's ego, the condition of Frank Gore's ankle or Mike Singletary's umbrella of caution (Yeah, I went there)? Unload them here tomorrow at 1 p.m. Don't worry, your bosses won't mind ...

By the way -- Sheets & Coffee = Bed & Breakfast = truly inspired.

Matt was born in Blacksburg, Va., and attended the University of Virginia. He graduated in 1995, went to Northwestern for a journalism degree a year later, and got his first job at a South Carolina daily in 1997. He joined The Bee as a Metro reporter in 1999 and started covering the 49ers in 2003. His favorite player of all time is Darrell Green.
