After allegations, Crabtree not seen arriving with team in Atlanta

Jan 18, 2013 at 8:41 PM--


Earlier tonight, it was reported that 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree was interviewed by San Francisco police about allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman in the city following the team's 45-31 victory over the Green Bay Packers.

The incident reportedly occurred on January 13, the morning following the team's victory.

Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reported on Twitter that Crabtree was not seen with the team as they arrived in Atlanta.


In response, Mindi Bach of CSN Bay Area reported on Twitter that Crabtree was indeed seen at the team facility earlier today.


According to the 49ers, Crabtree did make the trip to Atlanta and the team is aware of the investigation. Trent Baalke, the team's general manager, issued the following statement:

"We are aware of the allegation against Michael and understand that he has fully cooperated with authorities ... The 49ers take such matters very seriously. We will have no further comment at this time as the legal process is ongoing. Additional requests for comment should be directed to Michael's attorney."

The incident is being investigated by the Special Victims Unit. The detectives interviewed Crabtree with his lawyer present and it has been said that he has been very cooperative.

Crabtree, who had nine receptions for 119 yards and two touchdowns against the Packers, is expected to play on Sunday in the NFC Championship game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Update

Here is a photo of Crabtree arriving at the hotel in Atlanta. His arrival was missed by all of the 49ers beat writers that were there waiting for the team. Crabtree may have simply used a different entrance to avoid questions.

49ers' Trent Williams and Deebo Samuel named to 2021 NFL All-Pro Team

Two San Francisco 49ers players were named to their first NFL All-Pro team. One is third-year wide receiver Deebo Samuel, one of the most dynamic players in the game. The second is the team's nine-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle, Trent Williams. Both were first-team selections. Until now, Williams, a first-round draft pick in 2010, has gone his entire career without being named to an All-Pro team, which may be difficult to believe. On Thursday, a reporter asked the veteran tackle what it would mean to finally be named an All-Pro. "I think it would feel good, finally," Williams responded. "It sucks because I can't let it define my career because I've never made it. If I felt like that's what I needed to define my career, then anything I've done up to

When the 49ers clash with the Cowboys on Sunday, it should be a barroom brawl any frontiersman could tip his hat to. The 49ers have the talent and the passion to produce a win on Sunday. Still, many questions remain: Will Trent Williams really be able to play? Will Jimmy Garoppolo plow through the game with an injured thumb again this week? Will the 49ers shed their tendency toward injury for just long enough to broach a deep run into the playoffs, starting with a win over the Cowboys? Although these are all great questions, here's an even better one: Which 49ers team will show up to duke it out against a hot Cowboys team? There's a right answer to this question and, of course, a

This week, the San Francisco 49ers released a video featuring a mic'd up George Kittle having fun against the Houston Texans. A lot of fun. The Niners won the Week 17 home matchup 23-7, earning the team's ninth victory of the season. As always, the 49ers tight end was one of the most excited individuals in the stadium that day. The video shows Kittle encouraging and congratulating his teammates, including rookie quarterback Trey Lance, who made his first start at Levi's Stadium. At about the 3:40 mark, you can see an enthusiastic Kittle celebrating a touchdown with his teammates—and being just as physical as he is when the play clock is running. "You. Yes, yes, yes, you," Kittle yells while pointing at Lance before running over to the
