Linebacker NaVorro Bowman and guard Mike Iupati weren’t the only 49ers to leave Sunday’s loss to the Seahawks with injuries.

Coach Jim Harbaugh announced at a press conference on Tuesday that running back Frank Gore broke his right ring finger during the game. Harbaugh said that he wasn’t aware that Gore suffered an injury until after the game and that it wasn’t the reason why Gore wasn’t on the field for the Niners’ final offensive plays of the game.

Matt Maiocco of reports that Gore, who had just 14 yards on 11 carries on Sunday, will have minor surgery to repair the injury. It’s not expected to impact his readiness for the offseason program.

Harbaugh also confirmed that Bowman tore both his MCL and ACL and that he will have to wait for the MCL injury to heal before doctors perform surgery on the ACL. He also confirmed that guard Mike Iupati fractured his fibula, but that he will not need surgery to make a full recovery.

    For some reason barely anyone has mentioned the fact above: Frank Gore, 11 carries for 14 yards. Now that is some run defense. Fortunately Manning can’t run it like Kaepernick. I am a Seahawks fan, but wish all injured 49ers a great recovery, that was a tough game.

    Bad luck ending to a bad luck year. The Niners fought through it all and STILL got to the Championship game.

    Probably from him choking in this game.

    He barely had more rushing yards than carries.

    It’s much easier to whine about a kicker who’s non-kicking foot lands on a Hawk player after punting than it is to look at the real reasons why the game was lost.

    well that explains everything….no wonder he averaged only one yard a carry….for a minute there i thought it had something to do with the seahawks defense.

    I am thinking Frank Gore suffered a concussion during that game and tried to tough it out.

    I wouldn’t write off Gore just yet. That is one tough dude.

    Was that before or after the Seattle D took away his manhood?

    It’s a devastating blow to these guys, I hope they make a % 100 recovery so the seahawks rivalry will continue with them. All you 49er fans talked soo much trash pregame and now it’s all over for you. But hopefully they recover

    I am a seahawk. I would like to think both sides are big enough to beat daises out of each other during the game, then grab your opponent for a pizza and laughs after the game.
