The 49ers haven't said exactly why they're suspending Jacobs. They could have just released the 30-year-old runnig back as he is only signed for this season, but coach Jim Harbaugh and the team likely wanted to send a message.
Jacobs complained last week about playing for the 49ers, saying, “I am on this team rotting away so why would I wanna put any pics up of anything that say niners,” Jacobs wrote in an Instagram post Saturday. “This is by far the worst year I ever had.”.
He has just five carries for 7 yards in two games this season.
