NFL fines Gore for wearing socks too low

The SportsXchange

San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore has been fined $10,500 for wearing his socks too low during the NFC Championship Game.

Gore was fined for "failure to conform" due to his socks being too low in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Atlanta Falcons, according to ESPN.

NFL players are required to wear their socks high to meet with the bottom of the uniform pants. Gore wore his socks about a foot too low down his leg.

This is the second time Gore has been fined this year. He previously was fined the same amount, $10,500, for throwing a ball into the crowd against the Arizona Cardinals in the regular season finale.

Gore finished the NFC Championship game with 90 rushing yards and two touchdowns against the Falcons.
