Running back Frank Gore and wide receiver Anquan Boldin were both fined $7,875 for separate incidents during the 49ers’ divisional round victory over the Carolina Panthers last week, an NFL spokesman confirmed.

Boldin was fined for a head butt that did not draw a penalty flag. Gore was flagged for grabbing the facemask of blitzing Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis in the second quarter.

Panthers defensive back Josh Thomas was fined $7,875 for attempting to punch 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton in the fourth quarter.

Carolina’s defense was called for unsportsmanlike penalties on the first two 49ers drives of the game, but neither Mike Mitchell nor Captain Munnerlyn were fined.
