MINNEAPOLIS -- The 49ers will be without running back Frank Gore for the near future at least.

Gore just left the Metrodome playing area riding a motorized cart. The 49ers came out passing and gave the ball to Glen Coffee early. Gore carried for 4 yards on his only play.

An ankle injury limited Gore during the week.

Gore's value as a runner is obvious. His value as a pass protector should not be underestimated. The 49ers did draft Coffee in the third round, and he has looked good. But Gore's experience could be missed, particularly on passing downs.
