Ahmad Brooks is returning to California and will not play Saturday following charge

Aug 26, 2015 at 5:25 PM--


Linebacker Ahmad Brooks' time with the San Francisco 49ers may be nearing an end. A Santa Clara County Grand Jury has charged Brooks with one count of misdemeanor sexual battery. They have also charged former 49ers defensive lineman Ray McDonald on one count of raping an intoxicated woman following a party at his house in December.

Among the claims within the lawsuit was that Brooks had groped her in a "sexual manner" while she was unconscious.

Brooks faces up to six months in prison for the alleged incident that took place on the same night and involved the same woman as in the McDonald charge.

A written statement from 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said:

"The organization is aware that a misdemeanor charge has been filed against Ahmad Brooks stemming from a December 2014 matter. We take any charge against a member of this organization seriously and are in communication with the NFL. Ahmad is returning home to California and will not participate in Saturday's game."

That game will be against the Denver Broncos. The 49ers are in Denver right now holding joint practices with the Broncos.

Rich Eisen 'not ready to sleep' on the 49ers and their playoff chances

By David Bonilla
Nov 24, 2020

While many have given up on the San Francisco 49ers and the team's playoff chances, Rich Eisen hasn't. The host of The Rich Eisen Show feels Kyle Shanahan's squad still has a good shot at making a run during these final six games of the regular season and perhaps surprising some people. Eisen's hot take during his "4 Downs with Rich" segment saw the 49ers, not the 4-6 Minnesota Vikings or Detroit Lions, as a team that can sneak into postseason play as the seventh seed and make things uncomfortable for an opponent. "I am not done with them yet," said Eisen. "The 49ers are coming off their bye this week, Thanksgiving week. They're coming back, and they're taking on the Rams, who have a short week. "I don't know. The 49ers can come in there,

San Francisco 49ers rookie defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw recorded his first NFL sack on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. In fact, he was credited with 1.5 sacks during the game. While Kinlaw was among Pro Football Focus' lowest-graded players from the game, one analyst, Brian Baldinger of NFL Network, once again saw flashes of greatness from the first-year defender. The potential is there, and Baldy feels Kinlaw could develop into a devastating force in the NFL. How devastating? Baldy offered some high praise while breaking down one of a few plays by the 49ers' first-round pick. "There's a half a dozen plays on Sunday, in this loss by the
