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

Beat writer Matt Maiocco isn't reporting that Gore's roster spot is in danger, but believes the team might explore ways to reduce his non-guaranteed, $6.45 million salary. One way that could be accomplished is by turning some of Gore's 2014 salary into a bonus, and adding a voidable year(s) to his deal. However, that would just be a restructure, not a 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 stopped 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.

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."

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.
