UPDATE: Frank Gore Fractures Hip - Out For Season

Via RealGM

Sacramento Bee - 49ers coach Mike Singletary wants the tandem of rookie running back Anthony Dixon and veteran rusher Brian Westbrook to combine to replace the injured Frank Gore.
San Francisco lost Gore for the remainder of the season with a hip injury suffered in Monday night's win over Arizona.
Singletary wants Dixon to display a brusing style to complement Westbrook's dashing efforts.
In effect, he wants them to become a "Thunder & Lightning" tandem.

 Frank Gore out for the year.

Brian Westbrook might be a savior.  Coming into the game with only 6 carries for 11 yards, Westbrook finished the game with 136 yards and a TD.  Rookie Anthony Dixon had 14 carries for 54 yards and a TD, and he should split the carries with Westbrook the remainder of the year.

Frank Gore left the game during the first quarter with an injury and headed towards the locker room.  Now there are reports out that Frank Gore will land on the IR with a fractured right hip.  This is awful news for Gore fantasy owners as the playoffs are coming up and Gore contributes 40% of the 49ers offense.
