It is being reported by multiple sources that 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree is being investigated for sexual assault. This is a serious charge but it’s only a charge not a conviction or even an arrest. I do not know if he will play on Sunday. Although after the San Jose Mercury News said he did not accompany the team to Atlanta, the 49ers said he did arrive at the team hotel.
I’m only reporting the little I know. To read more about this, please click here.
Here is another link to this developing story. What I am about to write seems trivial if Crabtree really did assualt someone — and I apologize for being crass –but if Crabtree does not play against Atlanta, the Ninerscould be in deep trouble. Crabtree could be in deeper trouble, although then again he may not be in deeper trouble and he may play. Stay tuned.
