Just days after Brandon Jacobs complained about "rotting away" with the San Francisco 49ers, the team has suspended the veteran running back for the remainder of the regular season. Signed to a one-year, $1.6 million contract in early April, Jacobs has been active for just three of the 49ers' 13 games this season, logging a mere 10 plays. On those plays, Jacobs has five rushing attempts for 7 yards. By not being a part of the team's 46-man gameday roster, Jacobs lost $125,000 in "per game active" roster bonuses through Sunday and will lose $37,500 more while serving his three-game suspension. Jacobs lashed out on social media late last week. "I am on this team rotting away so why would I wanna put any pics up of anything that say niners." Jacobs wrote on Instagram, according to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com. "This is by far the worst year I ever had, I'll tell you like I told plenty others."
