Gore on hand for practice; shoes, gloves arrive in Canton, Ohio

Alex Smith and Frank Gore are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The hall recently received mementos from the 49ers' record-breaking offensive performance against the Bills two weeks -- a game ball signed by Smith and Gore as well as Gore's pink shoes and gloves.

The Week 5 victory marked the first time an NFL team accumulated more than 300 yards in both rushing and passing in one game. The 49ers ended up with 621 yards on the afternoon.

Speaking of Gore, he was on hand for the start of practice despite the bruised ribs he suffered Thursday. Mario Manningham (shoulder) and Kyle Williams (arm) also were on hand for practice.
