San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore said it wasn't his limited offensive role that caused him to not want to speak to reporters after the team's loss to the Cardinals, but the loss itself.
Gore spoke to reporters for less than a minute following the game before saying, "I’m sorry, I can’t talk right now."
“I was frustrated. If we’d gotten the win, I’m happy. I’m happy," Gore said Wednesday, according to CSN Bay Area.
The running back had just six carries for 10 yards in the loss, his fewest carries in a game since 2012 and fewest rushing yards since 2011.
“For me, I feel whatever works, I’m with it,” Gore said. “If it’s passing, it’s passing. If it’s running, then we’re running. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to win. If we got to go out there and do the spread again, I’m with it. That’s what type of player I am. I just want to win."
The 49ers are 1-2 on the season heading into Week 4. They host the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
