Good news, fantasy football fanatics.
Frank Gore and his bruised ribs made it through the second full practice of the week on Thursday. The team also went through a lighter session on Monday. Gore had trouble breathing during Thursday's game against the Seahawks after he was hit hard from behind by cornerback Brandon Browner. The pain, however, has subsided significantly since, he said.
Receiver Mario Manningham (shoulder) linebacker Tavares Gooden (elbow), punter Andy Lee (hand) and quarterback Alex Smith (finger) also practiced in full.
The only 49er who didn't practice was left tackle Joe Staley, who is dealing with an illness. Staley was on the field for walk-throughs and and observed the second half of Thursday's practice.
His illness will not help him in preparing for Cardinals right defensive end Sam Acho.
