Bewitching hour for Smith and his shoulder
Matthew Barrows, Sac Bee
Not only has Alex Smith not thrown a ball in nearly two weeks, he hasn't even lifted his right arm over his head. The strategy is to keep his injured shoulder as immobile as possible for two weeks - which will be this Sunday - and then re-examine it at that point. Smith said that examination could occur Monday or Tuesday. He is contemplating a return trip to Birmingham, Ala. to visit Dr. James Andrews or he could possibly fly to Los Angeles to meet with a doctor there that Andrews recommended. The visit will be an important one - the results could determine whether Smith plays again this season or possibly whether he will have surgery to reattach the ligaments between his collarbone and shoulder.

Gore deals with death of Taylor after mom's passing
John Crumpacker, San Francisco Chronicle
For the second time this season, Frank Gore has been hit with the type of tragedy that makes football trivial in comparison. Once again, he must compartmentalize his grief as he prepares to play a game. In September, he lost his mother, Liz Gore, to kidney disease. On Tuesday, he lost a friend and former teammate to gun violence when safety Sean Taylor of the Washington Redskins was shot and killed in his home in the Miami area. Gore and Taylor entered the University of Miami together in 2001; they first met years before playing Pop Warner football."It's tough losing my mom, now losing my friend, who I played ball with," Gore said in his typically soft tone. "He was a tough dude, great football player. A lot of people don't know he was a great dude. At the University of Miami, all the boys are close. It's like losing my brother.
