                      === 49ers suspend unhappy Jacobs ===
 Santa  Clara, CA  (Sports Network) - Brandon Jacobs' disappointing season with
 the San Francisco 49ers will have an early ending, with the team announcing on
 Monday  that it has suspended the disgruntled running back for the final three
 The  49ers have  yet to publicly disclose their reasoning for the move, though
 Jacobs  has been  grumbling over  his limited  role this  season and  recently
 engaged  in a  social media  spat with  several San  Francisco fans  that were
 displeased with the offseason addition having posted pictures on his Instagram
 account of him with his former team, the New York Giants.
 "I  am  on this  team rotting  away so  why would I  wanna put  any pics up of
 anything  that  say niners," Jacobs responded  to a fan according to a Comcast
 SportsNet  Bay Area  report from this past  weekend. "This is by far the worst
 year I ever had, I'll tell you like I told plenty others."
 Jacobs,  who  signed a one-year contract  with the Niners in March after being
 released  by the Giants, has been active in only two games this season and had
 a mere five rushing attempts totaling seven yards.
 The  eight-year pro  put  together back-to-back  1,000-yard  seasons with  the
 Giants  in  2007 and  2008, ranking  among the league  leaders with 15 rushing
 touchdowns  as well during the last of those campaigns, but his production has
 declined in each of the past four seasons since.
 Jacobs  would  be eligible to  return if the  NFC West-leading 49ers reach the
 playoffs,  though it  appears unlikely he'd be active given how sparingly he's
 been used this season.
