49ers’ Brandon Jacobs Suspended For Tweets

SANTA 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 Southern Illinois University-Carbondale alum has five carries for 7 yards while playing in only two games with the NFC West-leading Niners.
