49ers suspend RB Brandon JacobsSANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - The San Francisco 49ers have suspended running back Brandon Jacobs for the final three games after a series of posts on social media sites addressing his lack of playing time.
One of those posts during the weekend said he was "on this team rotting away."
The 30-year-old Jacobs has five carries for 7 yards while playing in only two games with the NFC West-leading Niners.
