San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore says he could have played through his injuries in Sunday's win over the New York Giants.

Gore was hobbled by knee and ankle ailments and managed just six carries for zero yards in the 27-20 triumph. He was limited to one snap over the final 30 minutes of action.

Backup running back Kendall Hunter also had six carries but finished with 40 yards and a touchdown.

Gore insisted the injuries wouldn't prevent him from playing next week against the Baltimore Ravens. He said running backs coach Tom Rathman made the call to keep him on the sidelines as a precautionary measure.

Gore had rushed for 382 yards over his previous three games. He has 165 carries for 782 yards and five touchdown on the season.
