Crabtree has been questioned by police regarding a sexual assault allegation, the San Francisco Police Department confirmed to NFL.com and NFL Network. Police said the alleged assault occurred in a city hotel room early Sunday. Details were not provided but the 49ers released the following statement: "We are aware of the allegation against Michael and understand that he has fully cooperated with authorities," GM Trent Baalke said Friday in the statement. "The 49ers take such matters very seriously. We will have no further comment at this time as the legal process is ongoing. Additional requests for comment should be directed to Michael's attorney."
Recommendation: The 49ers made the trip to Atlanta and Crabtree did, in fact, make the trip and is expected to play on Sunday. It's difficult to say how much this will affect his mindset while he is on the field with few details known on the matter, so you should assume it will be business as usual. Crabtree has been the most targeted receiver on the 49ers team since Colin Kaepernick took over as quarterback and should remain the focal point of the passing attack again this Sunday.
