SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers have suspended running back Brandon Jacobs for the final three games following a series of posts on social media sites addressing his lack of playing time, including one during the weekend saying he was "on this team rotting away."

The 49ers said Monday, about two hours after coach Jim Harbaugh's news conference, that Jacobs had been disciplined.

Jacobs became increasingly verbal in his frustration via social media during the weekend over a lack of playing time.

Harbaugh declined to address Jacobs' comments, even when asked whether Jacobs is still on the team. He said he was invoking his "fifth amendment" right.

The 30-year-old Jacobs has five carries for 7 yards while being active for only two games with the NFC West-leading Niners (9-3-1). He spent his first seven NFL seasons with the New York Giants and has called this his "worst" year.
