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.

Nick Bosa's pleads for ref help misunderstood during 49ers vs. Rams

San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa finished Monday night's game against the Rams with three tackles, two sacks, five quarterback hits, and, according to Pro Football Focus, a career-high 14 total pressures. To put that statistic into perspective, the entire Rams defense finished with five total pressures. Bosa leads the NFL with 30 pressures. He accomplished that feat despite opposing offenses doing everything they could—including blatant holding—to stop the powerful pass rusher. Bosa is used to it by now. Unfortunately, he rarely gets any help from the refs officiating his games. This week, head coach Kyle Shahanan revealed that the 49ers regularly turn in examples showing opponents going beyond the rules while trying to stop



49ers' Kyle Shanahan on viral Jimmy Garoppolo clip: "I'm pretty sure that's not what he said"

Before each of his press conferences, someone from the San Francisco 49ers PR team will brief head coach Kyle Shanahan on anything viral from the week that may evoke questions from reporters. This week, the viral content came in the form of a video clip from Sunday night's telecast of the game between the 49ers and Denver Broncos. It featured a frustrated Jimmy Garoppolo storming off the field after a failed play. The tweet suggests that Garoppolo might be saying, "All your plays suck, man." Of course, this is all speculation, but social media lip readers went with it, leading to the video trending. "All of your plays



John Lynch not concerned about Jimmy Garoppolo's competitive nature, doesn't believe QB has resentment towards 49ers

On Friday, general manager John Lynch had a chance to respond to some of the fallout resulting from the San Francisco 49ers' Week 3 loss to the Denver Broncos. Much of the blame has been placed on the shoulders of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. However, it isn't just for his poor play on the football field, leading to the 11-10 loss in the Mile High City. Former 49ers tight end Brent Jones criticized Garoppolo for his lack of frustration following the Week 3 defeat. Garoppolo was seen smiling as he greeted an old teammate, offensive tackle Cameron Fleming, who was part of the same New England Patriots 2014 draft class as the 49ers quarterback. "It almost

Safety Talanoa Hufanga and wide receiver Deebo Samuel made the plays of the game during Monday night's San Francisco 49ers win over the Los Angeles Rams. Hufanga showed off his elite instincts with a pick-six off Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford. Samuel showed off his elite elusiveness with an impressive 57-yard touchdown run that made the Rams defenders look downright silly. Deebo just ran by the entire defense! @19problemz📺: #LARvsSF on
