Report: Ahmad Brooks took himself out of 49ers-Giants game
Ahmad Brooks is apparently unhappy with his playing time in the 49ers' linebacker rotation.
During Sunday's 16-10 win over the Giants, the 49ers elected to rotate Aldon Smith and Aaron Lynch in with Brooks. Toward the end of the game, Brooks was not spotted near the sideline. According to FOX Sports, that's because Brooks took himself out of the game due to his displeasure with the coaches' decision to split time between three linebackers.
Coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters that Brooks not finishing the game was due to the two "working through something." Despite the 49ers recording their sixth win and staying alive in the NFC West race, weird issues continue to could the franchise.
Winning should cure everything but that has been overshadowed quite a bit during the 2014 season.
