Ahmad Brooks pleads not guilty on misdemeanor sex battery

Sep 29, 2015 at 9:48 AM--


Damian Trujillo of NBC Bay Area is reporting that San Francisco 49ers LB Ahmad Brooks' lawyer is pleading "not guilty" on behalf of his client on the charges of misdemeanor sex battery. Brooks was not in court.

In August, a Santa Clara County Grand Jury 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.

Earlier this month, the 49ers released a statement regarding their decision to keep Brooks on the team.

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo on calf injury: 'I feel it, but it's not hindering me at all'

Jimmy Garoppolo missed Week 5 with a calf injury suffered a week earlier. He returned on Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts but delivered a sloppy performance on a rain-soaked Levi's Stadium field. Garoppolo finished the game 16-of-27 for 181 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions. While the outing looked like it might be enough to tempt the 49ers to at least consider a quarterback change this week, head coach Kyle Shanahan said he "would guess" Garoppolo remains the starter. It wasn't exactly a confidence-inspiring response. Garoppolo admits that his calf isn't at 100 percent yet, but the quarterback didn't use the injury as an excuse



Brian Baldinger on 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo: 'He's just not good enough'

Ask fans of the San Francisco 49ers to evaluate current starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, and you will probably get an array of responses that lean heavy to the side of disdain. For the organization that once replaced one Hall of Fame quarterback with another, modern-day 49ers fans have had a love-hate (mostly hate) relationship with their team's quarterbacks. Even former Pro Bowl quarterback, Jeff Garcia, felt the fans' wrath at times. But since then, it's been a steady stream of underachieving signal callers. So Garoppolo isn't the first San Francisco quarterback that fans have wanted to chase out of town with pitch forks and torches (cue the angry mob music). But fans hope, and so do the 49ers coaches and front office, that he will be the last. Right now



49ers-Bears: Khalil Mack not expected to play

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo may have to worry about one less All-Pro pass rusher chasing him around the football field this season. Chicago Bears defender Khalil Mack is not expected to play during Sunday's game against the Niners, per NFL Media. The three-time first-team All-Pro and six-time Pro Bowl selection could land on injured reserve due to a foot injury. That would force Mack to miss a minimum of three games and four weeks (because of the Bears' bye), likely starting with this weekend's matchup against the visiting



Fred Warner will always 'ride behind Jimmy,' says 49ers focused on earning next win, not 4-game losing streak

The San Francisco 49ers believe they have the right mindset despite losing four consecutive games. The team isn't dwelling on their misfortune. Instead, it is focused on the task at hand — beating the Chicago Bears on Sunday. "Any time you're going through sort of a rut like this, it's easy to kind of get down on yourselves," linebacker Fred Warner told Damon Bruce and Ray Ratto on 95.7 The Game today. "But I feel like I've been really impressed with how the guys have handled themselves, coming into work today, on a Wednesday, and guys really got after it. I don't think anybody is hanging their head or feeling sorry for themselves. "We're just trying to find a way to win. We're trying to find that one W. It's all about the Chicago Bears and nothing else
