Harbaugh mum on possible Brooks discipline
Share This Post

SANTA CLARA -- Linebacker Ahmad Brooks will not be charged with any crime, but he still could face discipline for his part in an alleged assault of 49ers teammate Lamar Divens.

Coach Jim Harbaugh declined Monday to discuss anything pertaining to Brooks or the case that the Santa Clara County District Attorney's office ultimately decided to drop. Harbaugh did not say whether the 49ers consider the matter closed or whether the team will impose any discipline.

Brooks allegedly struck Divens in the head multiple times with a beer bottle during an argument on June 8.

"(I am) not publicly discussing what our conversations have been with Ahmad or with any of our players," Harbaugh said. "(I am) not going to discuss what my conversations with him have been. As a general practice, (I) don't discuss conversations with any player on our team."

The NFL reserves the right to discipline any player even if he has not been charged with a crime. As a matter of course, the league will review the Brooks case.
