The 49ers climbed back into playoff contention with a win against the Cardinals, but they suffered a tremendous loss as well -- Frank Gore, who left the game early with a hip injury, and then pulled himself out of the game, is out for the year with a broken hip.

Jason LaCanfora of NFL Network first reported that Gore had a fractured right hip and would miss the remainder of the year. The 49ers confirmed Gore's injury status following the game.

After the win, Gore left the Cardinals stadium on crutches and is expected to miss the final five regular season games.

Gore piled up 52 yards against Arizona on just five carries in the early-going, but was replaced by Brian Westbrook who rushed 23 times for 136 yards and a touchdown.

It's expected that Westbrook will take the majority of carries for San Fran, with rookie Anthony Dixon grabbing some goal line action as well.

Regardless of how well Westbrook ran, though, there's nothing good to see here -- the Cardinals defense was completely anemic, and anyone with two legs and half a hip could have moved through their front seven.

In other words, with the coach-killing Packers looming next week, Gore's absence could mean bad things for Mike Singletary and the 49ers.

Brian Westbrook discusses filling in for the injured Frank Gore after Monday's win.

Frank Gore likely out for year with fractured hip

You know VMI there are hundreds of people that say stuff like that.  Let us do this once...let us take you out to the football field and then we break your hip and then you get up and continue to play.  If you can do that then I am a low life gutter rat.  But I can safely say I am not that becuase you would have to be carted off the field and knock out because of the pain.  So do me a favor and SHUT UP!

Wuss...if you can jog off the field, you shouldn't be done for the season...



The 49ers hid his helmet so he wouldn't go back in the game.  He took himself out after the 3rd and 15 run and played to more plays.

Donovan McNabb played on a broken ankle.

This is what happens when someone gives 110% on every snap and when you give that preson the ball 4 out of 5 snaps he will get hurt. Just glad we picked up westbrook and Dixon is good.
