    Gore (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Kansas City.
    Spin: Previous reports have indicated that Gore will play this week, but might not see any goal-line carries, which would reduce his fantasy value. We'll keep an eye on his status up until kickoff.

    While Gore is expected to return to action this week despite leaving Sunday's loss to Philadelphia with a strained muscle in his abdomen, his propensity for fumbling may cost him goal-line carries to Michael Robinson, the San Jose Mercury News reports. "That's something we're discussing right now,'' coach Mike Nolan said. ``It's something that could possibly happen.''
    Spin: "In the field of play, Frank is a very secure ball carrier -- at least he has been," Nolan said. "Down on the goal line both times, he was hit and turned around and they punched the ball out. That's correctable, but it also lends its way to giving another back an opportunity on the goal line and in short yardage to carry that ball." Robinson scored on a pair, one-yard runs after Gore left the Eagles' game with the injury, and at 6-foot-1, 218 pounds is much bigger than Gore, who is 5-foot-9, 212 pounds. If Gore, whose X-rays showed bruised ribs, does lose goal-line carries, his fantasy value takes a big hit.
