49ers suspended RB Brandon Jacobs for the final three games of the regular season.

Updating a previous item, Jacobs was not waived. 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh isn't letting him off that easy. Jacobs had complained about his role in recent weeks, and he had no value to the Niners other than depth behind Frank Gore, new change-of-pace back LaMichael James, and short-yardage option Anthony Dixon. Rather than waive Jacobs and let him go to a fellow NFC playoff contender like the Giants, the 49ers are stashing him on the reserve/suspended list.
