Brandon Jacobs' suspension will cost him $167,000

Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE

The San Francisco 49ers have suspended Brandon Jacobs for the final three games of the season.

The San Francisco 49ers suspended running back Brandon Jacobs for the final three games of the regular season after he complained to his Twitter followers about his lack of playing time this season, according to CSNBayArea.com.

The suspension will be without pay and will cost Jacobs $167,000 in base pay.

Jacobs has five carries for 7 yards in two games this season. He was active for just three games this year after he had 152 carries for 571 yards and seven touchdowns for the New York Giants last season.

San Francisco head coach Jim Harbaugh was asked to discuss Jacobs' status with the team on Monday but he simply replied with "no comment."

With Jacobs suspended and Kendall Hunter out with an Achilles injury, rookie LaMichael James had eight carries for 30 yards and one reception for 15 yards in the team's 27-13 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

James and Anthony Dixon are expected to back up Frank Gore for the remainder of the season.
