49ers running back Frank Gore will enter the offseason with a broken finger sustained in Sunday's NFC Championship, coach Jim Harbaugh announced to reporters on Tuesday.

Harbaugh said he was unaware of the injury until after the game. Gore was absent on offense late in the fourth quarter, though Harbaugh said that wasn't why he was held out.

He finished the game, a 23-17 loss, with 14 yards on 11 carries.
