Coach Jim Harbaugh "truly believes" Frank Gore has "three more good years."
We'll respectfully disagree. Gore will turn 31 in May, averaged 3.65 YPC over the final 10 games of last season and has 2,187 carries on his NFL resume. Only Steven Jackson (2,552) has more. Harbaugh is going to soon see that mixing in Kendall Hunter and Marcus Lattimore more will yield positive dividends. Mar 26 - 10:21 AM

Speaking Friday, 49ers GM Trent Baalke hinted the team won't ask Frank Gore to take a pay cut.

Going on 31 and coming off a slow finish, Gore is set to earn $6.45 million between salary and bonuses, but the Niners believe they're in good shape with the cap. Even if he's back at his scheduled salary, Gore can't return to his 2013 workload. We fully expect the Niners to carve out a bigger role for Kendall Hunter while easing in Marcus Lattimore.

Frank Gore had just one 100-yard rushing day across his final 13 games (including playoffs).

As Evan Silva notes in his Post-Season Top 200, Gore will be taking massive age and workload concerns into 2014. He'll turn 31 in May, has piled up 965 carries over the last three seasons and averaged just 3.65 YPC over the final 10 games of 2013-14. The 49ers would be wise to get Kendall Hunter and Marcus Lattimore more involved. Silva currently has Gore 15th among running backs in his rankings, which can be accessed at the link below.

CSN Bay Area believes the 49ers could approach Frank Gore about taking a pay cut.

Beat writer Matt Maiocco isn't reporting Gore's roster spot is in danger, but believes the team might explore ways to reduce his non-guaranteed, $6.45 million in salary and bonuses. One way that could be accomplished is by turning some of Gore's 2014 salary into a "signing" bonus, and adding voidable year(s) to his deal. However, that would just be a restructure, not a pay cut. Going on 31, Gore is likely realistic about his future. Running backs are a year-to-year proposition after they turn 30.

CSN Bay Area reports Frank Gore will undergo "minor finger surgery."

Leftys Sports Collectibles, a sports collectibles shop in California, tweeted Monday evening that Gore broke his right hand in the NFC Championship game Sunday and would undergo surgery Tuesday. It appears they were partially correct. It's not a major concern. Gore will be ready in plenty of time for camp.

Frank Gore reportedly broke his hand in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

The report comes from a sports collectibles shop in California where Gore was signing autographs Monday night. Gore will reportedly have surgery Tuesday. Take it with a grain of salt, but we wouldn't expect to hear much on the issue considering the 49ers don't comment much on injuries. Even if the report proves to be true, Gore will be ready in plenty of time for mandatory minicamp.

Frank Gore was bottled up for 14 yards on 11 carries in San Francisco's NFC Championship Game loss to Seattle.

He added one catch for 17 yards. Gore was simply erased by Seattle's hot-and-cold run defense, getting stopped for two yards or fewer on nine of his 11 carries. He was dropped for a loss three times. It was a disappointing end to a season where Gore appeared to wear down in the second half. Although Gore surpassed 1,000 yards on the ground for the seventh time in eight years, his 4.1 yards per carry was a career low. Going on 31, Gore is headed into the final year of his contract. Whether it's by Kendall Hunter or Marcus Lattimore, expect Gore to be spelled more often in 2014.
Jan 19 - 10:36 PM

Frank Gore rushed 17 times for 84 yards and caught an eight-yard pass in the 49ers' Divisional Round win at Carolina.

Gore managed seven yards on his first four carries, and San Francisco was quick to scale back the run game in the first half, even if it was understandable versus Carolina's No. 2 run defense. Gore finished the first two quarters with seven attempts for 17 yards. He also fumbled near the goal line in the third quarter, but San Francisco recovered. The Niners finally drilled home the run with a two-score second-half lead, and Gore ripped off a tackle-breaking 39-yard explosion that all but iced the game early in the fourth quarter. Still plenty elusive with elite vision in his age-30 campaign, Gore gets another tough matchup in next week's NFC Championship Game at Seattle's "Clink."
Jan 12 - 4:09 PM

Frank Gore rushed 20 times for 66 yards and a touchdown and caught an 11-yard pass in the 49ers' Wild Card round win over Green Bay.

Gore scored his second-quarter touchdown from ten yards out on a read-option play, giving San Francisco a 13-7 lead. Although Gore failed to generate big plays on the ground, he chipped in a crucial 11-yard reception in the fourth quarter on San Francisco's game-winning drive, which was capped by Phil Dawson's 33-yard field goal. Look for Gore to have a similar workload in next week's Divisional Round showdown with the Panthers.
Jan 5 - 7:54 PM

Frank Gore rushed 13 times for 14 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win at Arizona.

Gore was absolutely swallowed up by the Cardinals' top-ranked run defense, so the 49ers finally rode the back of Colin Kaepernick. It won't rattle the confidence of this scheme heading to a first-round playoff matchup at Green Bay's No. 27 run defense. Gore's regular season ends with 276 carries for 1,128 yards (4.08 YPC) and nine touchdowns, along with 16 catches for 141 yards. They're impressive numbers for a 30-year-old back that has more than 2,500 career touches on his resume. Don't be surprised at all if he puts a 100-yard game on the Pack.

Frank Gore (knee) is listed as probable for Week 17.

Gore returned to a full practice Friday after being limited earlier in the week. He's a mid-range RB2 for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Fri, Dec 27, 2013 06:46:00 PM

Frank Gore (knee) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

The 49ers are just managing their veteran back's reps. He'll be fine for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Cardinals.
Thu, Dec 26, 2013 07:23:00 PM

Frank Gore (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Gore is just two days removed from burning Atlanta's defense for 103 total yards and a touchdown. He should be all systems go for Week 17 at Arizona.
Wed, Dec 25, 2013 08:14:00 PM

Frank Gore rushed for 97 yards and one touchdown on 21 carries in Monday night's Week 16 win over the Falcons.

Gore added one catch for six yards. He seemed to be favoring his ankle a bit in the first half. Gore has been battling the issue for a few weeks now, but he went and got it re-taped and continued on. Gore is one of the more patient runners in the game, and he puts that on display every week. His touchdown came from one yard out in the fourth quarter and was his ninth rushing score of the season. Gore's career-high is ten. He ends the season with a road trip to Arizona next Sunday. Gore has been a steady RB2 all year long.
Tue, Dec 24, 2013 12:15:00 AM

Frank Gore (ankle, knee) is listed as probable for Monday night's game against the Falcons.

Gore was limited in practice this week, but his status was never in doubt. He's Rotoworld's No. 13 overall running back for Week 16.
