Two days after the San Francisco 49ers suspended running back Brandon Jacobs, they’ve now given away his locker to another player. Harbaugh was asked if Jacobs was suspended for conduct detrimental to the team. “Uh, Yes . . . well, let me stay away from categorizing it,” answered Harbaugh. On Tuesday, 49ers defensive lineman Ray McDonald said the coaching staff felt Jacobs had become a distraction. “From the coaching standpoint, they don’t want any distractions on the team. He was being a distraction, they felt he was being a distraction, so they felt they needed to do something about it,” McDonald said. “I guess, if he’s not about the team. And the coaches feel that he’s not trying to help the team. They made the right decision.” Harbaugh did not go into detail about the reasoning behind the suspension. “The league has a process when you suspend a player that there’s a process that you go through,” Harbaugh said. “So you’re really not in a position to be talking about that.” Jacobs, whose suspension would cost him $167,000 in lost wages, is expected to file a grievance with the NFL. It looks like Jacobs won’t play another down for the 49ers and probably won’t be playing in the NFL ever again.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";
