Marcus Lattimore: I’m trying to take Frank Gore’s job


Second-year 49ers running back Marcus Lattimore is focused on trying to become the lead back in San Francisco.

“I’m trying to take [Gore’s] job, but I know that’s going to be the hardest thing in the world,” Lattimore told USA TODAY Sports.

It’s great that Lattimore’s goal is to be the 49ers lead back,  but he needs to prove his surgically repaired knee is back to normal,  which it may never be.
