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.

Kyle Shanahan was feeling good on Monday night. The head coach's San Francisco 49ers won their third consecutive game, with the latest being a 38-10 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in an international matchup in Mexico City. The 49ers are getting hot, and have become a favorite to make some noise down the stretch and in the NFC playoffs, assuming things continue to trend upward for the team. "I felt real good about the guys," Shanahan told reporters after the game. "[The players] had a great week of practice. They've really been gelling these last three weeks. I feel like it's gotten a little better each week, and it was nice to put a full game together today." Players are also feeling the momentum build up. "We're definately ready to



Why play-calling shouldn't be blamed for 49ers' offensive woes

The 49ers don't have a playcalling issue. They have an execution issue. Week after week, I've evaluated the 49ers' offensive film to understand where the problems stem from, and it's the same answer every week: execution. In Week 10, the 49ers scored just 22 points, as they converted only two of their five red zone drives into touchdowns, while leaving other points on the board elsewhere. First Red Zone drive On 1st & Goal at the LAC 9, Jimmy Garoppolo threw an incompletion out of the endzone to a well-covered Deebo Samuel. This

Dre Greenlaw posted "Free me" to social media shortly after being ejected from Sunday night's game between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Chargers. Officials from New York ruled the linebacker's helmet-to-helmet hit on quarterback Justin Herbert warranted him exiting the game. "It was just like a bang-bang play," Greenlaw told reporters on Friday. "I definitely did not mean to get ejected or hurt anybody, but that's part of football." Today, the NFL has fined Greenlaw $10,609 for the hit on Herbert, per NFL insider Ian



49ers Notebook: John Lynch on what Christian McCaffrey adds, surprising O-line play

By David Bonilla
Nov 26

The San Francisco 49ers gave up a lot for Christian McCaffrey, sending second-, third-, and fourth-round picks in the 2023 draft and a fifth-round pick in 2024 to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for the star running back. General manager John Lynch acknowledges it was a lot to give up. However, it just speaks to how much the 49ers respected McCaffrey and what he could do in head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. Lynch and Shanahan already had great confidence in the offense's potential, but they knew that it could be something special with McCaffrey in the picture. "You're not going to make a move like that if you don't think you can compete with anyone in this league, if you don't think this could be the thing to push us over the top," Lynch told NBC Sports Bay
