Frank Gore injury: 49ers running back may have suffered broken hand early in Sunday's game

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The 49ers injury list continues to grow with reports Frank Gore suffered a broken hand against the Seahawks. We break down the details.

Fooch's update: Matt Barrows and Matt Maiocco are reporting Gore will have surgery on his finger, and it is not considered a serious issue.

The San Francisco 49ers running game struggled to get much of anything going on Sunday, and we saw fairly limited reps for the running backs throughout. One reason Frank Gore was limited might have been to a broken hand. Gore was signing autographs at Lefty's Sports Cards memorabilia shop, and Lefty's broke this news:

If you look at that picture, his right hand is seriously swollen. The fact that he played through the game with that busted hand is simply incredible.

Somehow the 49ers-Seahawks games up in Seattle have been so costly for the 49ers. The last three games up there, the 49ers have suffered significant injuries. It's safe to say this is a storyline to track when the 49ers head back up there in 2014.

But for now, Frank Gore joins the rest of the group showing serious toughness in the Pacific Northwest. We'll keep an eye out for more details on this.
