49ers | Nolan wants Gore to receive fewer touches in 2007

Matt Maiocco, of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, reports San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Nolan is planning to keep RB Frank Gore fresh throughout the 2007 season. Nolan said he hopes Gore will touch the ball fewer than his 312 carries in 2006. "It would be nice to get somebody in there who could take some of the load. There's a lot of wear and tear on a running back who runs like he does. He doesn't shy away from too much and he's not a huge guy, although he's stocky and sturdy. He takes a lot of punishment."
