JACOBS WILL MISS THE LAST GAMES OF 49ERS
Wed, 12 Dec 2012 01:30 AM EST

The SF 49ers suspended RB Brandon Jacobs for the last 3 games following a series of posts on social media sites addressing his lack of playing time, including one during the weekend saying he was ”on this team rotting away.”

The 49ers made the statement about 2 hours after Coach Jim Harbaugh’s news conference, but provided no reason for why Jacobs had been disciplined. It is in doubt he would return for the playoffs.

Jacobs posted on his social account: ”Thank you all for all your support, I’m doing wonderful it isn’t a big deal things happen; I am strong enough to get through this, again thank all of you for your support.”

Harbaugh declined to address Jacobs’ earlier comments, even when asked whether Jacobs was still on the team. He said that he was invoking his ”Fifth amendment” right.

The 30-year-old Jacobs has 5 carries for 7 yards while playing in only 2 games with the NFC West-leading Niners (9-3-1). He spent his 1st 7 NFL seasons with the N.Y Giants and has called this his ”worst” year – though he knew that he was joining an crowded backfield that features 3-time Pro Bowler Frank Gore as one of the faces of the franchise.

In recent days, he posted a series of photos of himself playing for the Giants – and even a picture of his 2 Super Bowl championship rings, side-by-side.

”I am on this team rotting away so why would I wanna put any pics up of anything that say niners,” Jacobs said. ”This is obviously the worst year I ever had, I’ll tell you like I told plenty others.”

Later, Jacobs declared: ”I don’t understand why people are not happy at me because I wanna do what I’m paid to do, I regard myself as a competitive person, I believe people should be mad if I didn’t wanna play. … As for all of my stills I don’t have any niner pictures, if you’ll find me some pics I can put them up.” Football scores

Jacobs, hampered by a left knee injury earlier this season, spends roughly 20 minutes before games smacking the goal-post padding. He has said it is his way of dealing with the situation.

Last month, Jacobs posted advice on his social account with a reference to never working ”in a place where you hate your boss so much, you should always be happy at work” with a hash tag of ”YouLiveAndYouLearn.”

His post came the same day Harbaugh was hospitalized for a minor procedure for an irregular heartbeat.

Later, he posted that his comments referred to his brother’s boss, who makes ”him feel just like he’s the best thing since slice bread but when the budget is shot he is the 1st one get laid off, same with two others I know.”

Jacobs ran for 571 yards and 7 touchdowns last season with New York as a backup to Ahmad Bradshaw. He’s the 4th-leading rusher in franchise history with 4,849 yards, but saw his role diminish with the emergence of Bradshaw and became increasingly disgruntled.
