Niners have not confirmed Michael Crabtree will play Sunday «


While the 49ers were en route to Georgia, the news broke that Michael Crabtree was questioned by San Francisco police about a sexual assault that allegedly occurred in a San Francisco hotel sometime early last Sunday after the 49ers’ game against the Packers. General manager Trent Baalke said that the team was aware of the allegation and that Crabtree had fully cooperated with the authorities.While the most important thing is making sure that justice prevails, there’s also a football side to the development. The 49ers have not directly said Crabtree will play Sunday, though it seems likely since the investigation is ongoing. It’s impossible to predict how the 49ers and Crabtree will be affected by the news. The young player is the most important receiver on the team and Colin Kaepernick’s security blanket. He is vital to the team’s success. And Saturday his face was plastered all over the television for all the wrong reasons.
