Frank Gore quickly gave credit to rookie LaMichael James for an impressive NFL debut - and for taking some pressure off the three-time Pro Bowler in the process.
Anthony Dixon is doing his part for San Francisco, too.
The 49ers' versatile running game showed its depth in Sunday's 27-13 victory against Miami, with Gore leading the way en route to his sixth career 1,000-yard rushing season.
It sure doesn't appear as though Brandon Jacobs will be back in the mix the rest of the way - barring an injury, of course - after he became increasingly verbal in his frustration via social media during the weekend over a lack of playing time. He referenced being ''on this team rotting away.''
Coach Jim Harbaugh declined to address Jacobs' comments on Monday, even when asked whether Jacobs is still on the team. He said he was invoking his ''fifth amendment'' right.

Over the weekend, the San Francisco 49ers improved their record to 9-3-1 with a 27-14 victory over the Miami Dolphins.
49ers running back Frank Gore accounted for 64 yards and a touchdown in the win but Frank's play on the field might have been overshadowed by his choice of wardrobe after the game.
Check out this picture of Gore wearing a "dead Miami Dolphins logo...
49ers running back Frank Gore was pretty confident that the 49ers would beat the Dolphins on Sunday. So confident that he packed a hoodie with that displayed a dead Dolphins logo on it.
Predictably, the hoodie was a hit in 49ers locker room and Gore was sure to let journalists like Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee get a good photo of the hoodie.

Yeah, that would be how to rub it in.
Frank Gore notched his sixth season with 1,000 or more rushing yards Sunday, and he also piled up 63 yards rushing and 22 yards receiving plus a touchdown to lead the 49ers past the Dolphins 27-13.
But if he and his team’s dominance weren’t conveyed well enough by his stat line and the scoreboard, Gore’s getup after the game certainly told...
49′ers Running back Frank Gore knew the perfect occasion to rock his “Pink Dolphin” hoodie that features an upside down dolphin rocking a helmet, when they played the Miami Dolphins of course. It wasn’t an accident and worked out well considering they got the W and Gore scored a touchdown and rushed for 85 yards. [...]
49ers running back Frank Gore rushed for a key third quarter touchdown, giving the 49ers a 13-3 lead. The touchdown is an even bigger deal because of the historical significant. This run marked his 50th career rushing touchdown, which evened him up with Joe Perry and Roger Craig for the most rushing touchdowns in 49ers history. The one yard plunge also moved him to 999 rushing yards...
After the Dolphins 2nd straight loss they assured themselves a fourth straight non-winning season, and sixth in seven years.
While Dolphins fans have to hold their heads up high and hope for a bright future, it might be hard to remain confident with Jeff Ireland still calling the shot.
Perhaps the Dolphins need some of the confidence that Frank Gore showed by having a Dolphins...
Rookie running back LaMichael James is set to make his San Francisco 49ers debut.
The second-round pick out of Oregon is active for the first time Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. James is taking the spot of backup Kendall Hunter, who was placed on season-ending injured reserve after hurting his ankle in a loss at St. Louis last week.
Niners wide receiver Mario Manningham is...
The 49ers are undergoing something of a transformation at running back these days. No, nothing has changed with the team’s featured back. Frank Gore remains a stalwart workhorse in the midst of a record-setting season that’s defining him as one of the greatest RBs in franchise history. But the backup situation behind him is taking on a whole new look.
The San Francisco 49ers tweeted Monday that running back Brandon Jacobs has been suspended for the final three games of the regular season.

Frank Gore made his way through San Francisco's winning locker room and offered a public shoutout to linebacker and NFL sacks leader Aldon Smith.
''Couple more, baby! Couple more, baby!'' Gore hollered.
Gore is taking charge on the 49ers offense, with Smith wreaking havoc on opposing quarterbacks for the defense.

Frank Gore, Anthony Dixon and Colin Kaepernick each scored a touchdown on the ground as the NFC West-leading San Francisco 49ers beat the Miami Dolphins, 27-13.
Gore carried the ball 12 times for 63 yards for the 49ers (9-3-1), who bounced back from last week's 16-13 overtime loss to the Rams. Gore's 50th career TD tied him with Joe Perry and Roger Craig for the most in...
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Frank Gore, Colin Kaepernick and Michael Crabtree pulled off the kind of grind-it-out win Jim Harbaugh wants to see during the December stretch run.
Gore ran for a 1-yard touchdown and reached 1,000 yards rushing for the sixth time in his career, and the San Francisco 49ers beat the Miami Dolphins 27-13 on Sunday.
Gore finished with 63 yards, Anthony Dixon...
The NFL’s number two rushing offense entered the game debuting a new back up and an off-season beast of an acquisition “rotting away.” As much as any team would want to give Frank Gore the rock for 25 to 30 carries a game, the San Francisco 49ers understand how much they need their workhorse down the back stretch of the 2012 season. With backups Kendall Hunter on IR and Brandon...
LaMichael James is up and Brandon Jacobs is down for today's game against the Dolphins. In addition, first-round draft pick A.J. Jenkins is active, and this time he promises to see the field. Jenkins has been in uniform twice this season but has not played a snap. Mario Manningham's shoulder injury means Jenkins is likely to be part of the offense today and may even overtake...
The 49ers improved to 9-3-1 and still keep distance ahead of Seattle and the No.2 seed. However if the offense doesn’t get together and be more consistent, it will be hard to keep that No.2 spot, let alone win the West.
Colin Kaepernick finished the day 18 of 23 for 183 and no touchdowns or interceptions. It was very Alexesque, that is until he scored a touchdown on a 50 yard run...
