49ers GM Trent Baalke said he wants impending free agent Frank Gore back in 2015.
Baalke is only going to want the career-long Niner to return under his terms. That likely means on a very cheap contract with an understanding that the team needs to feature Carlos Hyde more. Gore, who will turn 32 in May, takes a 230-962-4 line into Sunday's finale against the Cardinals. "Frank is going to want to discuss his role, and what that role is going to be moving forward," Baalke said. "What is the contract itself going to look like? We can both want each other's company, but to make that happen, there are hurdles that are going to have to be crossed." Dec 24 - 9:06 AM

Frank Gore rushed 26 times for 158 yards and a touchdown Week 16 against the Chargers.

The highlight of the evening was a first-quarter run in which Gore rumbled through several Chargers on his way to a 52-yard touchdown. Gore racked up 129 yards before halftime and looked unstoppable early in the game. He slowed down in the second half, but Gore still had enough juice to post his highest single-game rushing total since 2009. Gore will likely struggle Week 17 against the Cardinals' stout rush defense, but he showed on Saturday he still has plenty left in the tank.
Dec 21 - 12:16 AM

Frank Gore (concussion) is active for Week 16 against the Chargers.

Gore was cleared to play after practicing on a limited basis. He'll handle all of the carries with Carlos Hyde sidelined. The 49ers inactives are WR Stevie Johnson, CB Tramaine Brock, OLB Ahmad Brooks, OG Joe Looney, QB Josh Johnson, and OG Andrew Tiller.
Dec 20 - 6:59 PM's Ian Rapoport reports Frank Gore (concussion) will play in Saturday night's game against the Chargers.

Gore practiced on a limited basis and has cleared his concussion protocols. With Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) ruled out, he should see an increased workload. Gore is a top-25 running back play for Week 16.
Dec 20 - 3:51 PM

Frank Gore (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 16.

He was limited in Friday's practice. The 49ers host the Chargers on Saturday Night Football. Beat writers are guessing Gore will play, but it's not a guarantee. Carlos Hyde has already been ruled out. If Gore does receive clearance by Saturday, he will be a high-end flex option against San Diego.
Dec 19 - 4:42 PM

Frank Gore is "moving through the concussion protocol," and expected to start Saturday's game against the Chargers.

Gore practiced on Thursday, getting in a limited session. It's excellent news for the 49ers, as Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) is expected to be sidelined. Struggling mightily in the second half of the season, Gore will be a middling FLEX play for the fantasy finals. He'll be backed up by FB Bruce Miller and Alfonso Smith.
Dec 18 - 4:53 PM

Frank Gore (concussion) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Gore says he feels normal, but has yet to be cleared by an independent neurologist. With Gore and Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) uncertain for Saturday's game against the Chargers, the 49ers signed RB Phillip Tanner on Wednesday.
Dec 17 - 4:46 PM

Frank Gore (concussion) and Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) both did not practice Tuesday.

The 49ers weren't required to submit an injury report Tuesday, but they take on the Chargers on Saturday night, so both players are on a short week. Gore visited the doctor on Tuesday as part of the league's concussion protocol, while Hyde hurt his ankle and back in the third quarter last Sunday. Alfonso Smith and FB Bruce Miller are the only other ball-carriers on the 49ers roster.
Dec 16 - 8:23 PM

Frank Gore was forced from the 49ers' Week 16 game against the Seahawks with a concussion.

Gore went down throwing a vicious block late in the first half. He attempted to stagger off the field under his own power, but collapsed in a heap before making it to the sideline. Concerned players from both teams huddled around him before he was helped off the field. Gore was running reasonably well before going down, taking the rock 11 times for 29 yards and a touchdown. His score was a pinballing number from 10 yards out. Carlos Hyde will carry the mail in the second half.
Dec 14 - 6:03 PM

Frank Gore rushed for 63 yards on 12 carries in the 49ers' Week 14 loss to the Raiders.

Gore looked great when he got chances, but didn't get nearly enough of them. The 49ers played from behind for much of the contest and abandoned the run. Gore is an excellent receiver and pass blocker, but for whatever reason the 49ers have never made use of their running backs in the passing game under Jim Harbaugh. Gore will remain a weak flex option when the 49ers travel to Seattle in Week 15.
Dec 7 - 7:38 PM

Frank Gore rushed 10 times for 28 yards and caught one pass for eight yards Week 13 against the Seahawks.

Gore only saw three carries in the second half as the 49ers attempted to come from behind, and he struggled with the Seahawks' physical front all game. The 11 touches were the lowest for Gore since Week 7 against Denver. He will look to get back on track against Oakland Week 14.
Nov 28 - 12:02 AM

Frank Gore (knee) is probable for Thursday night's game against Seattle.

He's good to go after practicing in full on Wednesday. Gore was rested earlier in the week with a knee issue. He'll be a low-end RB2/FLEX against Seattle.
Nov 26 - 5:04 PM

Frank Gore is on the Week 13 injury report with a knee issue.

The 49ers listed Gore as limited for Monday's walkthrough. He's also been dealing with a hip injury, but his Week 13 status isn't a concern. Gore will be a low-end RB2/FLEX against Seattle on Thursday night.
Nov 25 - 11:45 AM

Frank Gore managed 39 yards on 13 carries in the 49ers' Week 12 victory over the Redskins.

The 49ers predictably had very little success running the ball on Washington's stout front. Gore contributed to San Francisco's turnover-filled day with a lost fumble in the fourth quarter. He was also "vultured" by Carlos Hyde on a fourth-quarter TD run, which proved the game winner. With a matchup against the Seahawks on deck, Gore will be a dicey bet as more than a low-expectations RB2/flex on Thanksgiving night. Gore is still a rock-solid all-around football player, but he's understandably lost a lot of "juice" as a runner during his age-31 season. He also wore down during last year's stretch run.
Nov 23 - 8:09 PM

Frank Gore rushed 19 times for 95 yards and caught two passes for 19 yards in Sunday's Week 11 win over the Giants.

Gore was extremely effective once again, consistently ripping off chunk runs against a Giants run defense that is inept without MLB Jon Beason. He ended up out-touching Carlos Hyde 21-10 and out-playing the rookie badly as well. The lone blemish was a first-quarter fumble in which Gore just lost the ball without being touched. Chugging along solidly once again, Gore will be a RB2 in a home game against the Redskins Week 12.
