Report: Frank Gore has fractured hip, will miss rest of the season

By Cindy Boren

San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore left the Monday night game against the Arizona Cardinals with an injury and, after the game, left University of Phoenix Stadium on crutches.

Preliminary diagnosis: fractured right hip. Gore, according to an NFL Network report, will be out of the rest of the season.

"When the unquestioned leader goes down, you're going to feel some sorrow about what's going on," Niners quarterback Troy Smith said.

Gore, who has 853 yards rushing on 203 carries on the season as 4-7 San Francisco tries to stay in the NFC West's meek race, had nice gainers of 25 and 15 yards on the opening possession but spent most of the first half on the sideline, sans helmet.

Brian Westbrook, the Philadelphia Eagles' former running back, replaced him and rushed for 136 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' 27-6 victory.
