-- Ahmad Brooks Benched for Missing a Tuesday Morning Meeting --
Mon Dec 8, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

AP reports San Francisco 49ers LB Ahmad Brooks said Sunday that he inadvertently missed a morning defensive meeting Tuesday but showed up an hour later for a second meeting focused on domestic violence. "There was a meeting earlier in the week, yes, defensive meeting," HC Jim Harbaugh said. "And other guys had a better week. He was in a backup role today." Brooks said nobody told him he wouldn't start or play at all Sunday, when San Francisco lost 24-13 to the Oakland Raiders to see its playoff hopes take another hit. He had his streak of 60 straight starts snapped dating to 2010. "Oh, man, I must've just forgot that we had a meeting," said Brooks, who thought it was a day off though San Francisco had three days last weekend off after playing Thanksgiving night. Brooks said from his understanding he thought he would play in some capacity, even after receiving fewer reps in practice during the week, noting, "They never once told me that I wasn't going to be playing at all." The 30-year-old Brooks said DC Vic Fangio asked him at the time what had happened. "It's frustrating, very frustrating," Brooks said. "They have their plan of what they want to do and all I can do as a player is just abide by the rules. No, I do not agree. I'm just a player, I'm just a number, you know what I mean?"

-- Ahmad Brooks Benches Himself --
Sun Nov 16, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

Fox Sports reports San Francisco 49ers LB Ahmad Brooks wasn't benched on Sunday. Rather, he benched himself.

The source said Brooks told the coaches and his teammates he believed he should be playing every snap and didn't care to be part of a rotation, so he pulled himself from the game. Multiple media reports from MetLife Stadium stated Brooks wasn't standing on the sideline in an effort to get back in the game but was rather sitting on the bench, removing his cleats and getting the tape cut off his ankles. After the game, 49ers HC Jim Harbaugh said he and Brooks are "working through something" and added: "We need Ahmad Brooks to win a championship. I feel that wholeheartedly and have felt that way." Brooks declined to address the situation in depth with reporters, though he agreed with the assessment he and Harbaugh are "working through something."

-- Source: NaVorro Bowman Might Not Play in 2014 --
Fri Nov 14, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports the San Francisco 49ers have until Tuesday to decide whether to activate LB NaVorro Bowman (knee - PUP) from the physically unable to perform list. But it might be a moot point. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, a source says there’s a “real possibility” Bowman won’t play again this year after blowing out his knee last season. There were reports that Bowman still had pain in the knee, but HC Jim Harbaugh said his recent MRI was “fine.” Those two statements aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive. The 49ers can still activate him from reserve/PUP Tuesday and have a three-week window to let him begin practicing. It’s hard to imagine they’ll make a season-ending move unless it’s obvious Bowman has no chance, since they have extra time to allow him to heal.

-- Patrick Willis Injury Update --
Wed Nov 12, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports San Francisco 49ers LB Patrick Willis’s (toe - IR) season came to an end on Tuesday when the team placed him on injured reserve because of a toe injury that will require surgery. Willis missed the last three games because of the injury, but revealed Tuesday that the injury was a bothersome issue long before he went down against the Rams in Week Six. “It’s been something that I’ve been dealing with for a while now,” Willis said, via CSNBayArea.com. “I could argue and say, ‘Should I have done it earlier before it got as bad as it did, before I hurt it worse than I did in the Rams game?’ I could, but I’m not going to, because I felt like at the time, I’ve always been a fighter and always been a competitor, so I’m going to fight and I’m go until I can’t go anymore. When I hurt it in the Rams game, it made me nervous then because I knew what I had already been feeling all these years.” Willis said that he wants to play “five or six more great years” and believes having surgery now will help make that a reality. He’s signed through the 2016 season, so the 49ers surely hope that there are at least two more great ones in the tank after the operation.

-- Marcus Lattimore to Retire --
Wed Nov 5, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The San Francisco 49ers official website reports the San Francisco 49ers announced Wednesday that RB Marcus Lattimore has informed the team he intends to retire. “This was a very difficult decision for Marcus and it was clear after speaking with him that he had put a lot of thought into it,” said 49ers general manager Trent Baalke. “He is a high-character young man who has done everything asked of him and more during his time with us and we have a great deal of respect for the strength and commitment he showed throughout the rehab process. It has been a pleasure to have Marcus as a member of our team and our community and we are confident that he will be very successful in whichever path he chooses to take in life. We look forward to supporting Marcus and wish him nothing but the best." "After prayer and careful consideration, I have decided it’s time to end my professional football career,” said Lattimore. “I have given my heart and soul to the game that I love, and it’s time for me to move on to the next chapter of my life and help others. I have given every ounce of my energy toward making a full recovery from my knee injury, and I have made a lot of progress. Unfortunately, getting my knee fully back to the level the NFL demands has proven to be insurmountable. I am grateful for the entire 49ers organization. Their decision to draft me was the realization of a lifelong dream to be an NFL player, and I cannot thank them enough for believing in me and for doing everything in their power to assist in my recovery. I will always be a 49er!

-- Marcus Lattimore Nearly Ready to Play --
Wed Oct 22, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

NFL.com reports RB Marcus Lattimore (knee) is close to realizing a dream few thought was possible. The former South Carolina running back, who endured one of the most gruesome in-game injuries we've ever seen on a football field back in 2012, will hit the practice field as an active participant for the first time in his career once the San Francisco 49ers return from the bye week. "As you know, it's been a long road," Lattimore said, via CSN Bay Area. The fourth-round pick was sidelined for all of last season and for the first three months of the 2014 season. The team fully expected a lengthy rehab process when they chose him, but the Niners hoped he could come back and resemble the dynamic running back he was at South Carolina. Lattimore is down five pounds from his days as a Gamecock and says he feels quicker than ever. He'll remain at the team's facility in Santa Clara throughout the bye week to get ready for his debut

-- Aldon Smith Could Return to 49ers Sooner Than Expected --
Tue Oct 21, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN reports the San Francisco 49ers could get help sooner than expected following this week's bye because outside LB Aldon Smith's nine-game suspension could be reduced for good behavior, league sources confirmed Monday. Smith was suspended before the season by the NFL under terms of the league's personal conduct and substance abuse policies. His nine-game suspension is set to end Nov. 10 after the 49ers play the Saints. However, sources confirmed an NBC Sports report that Smith's suspension could be reduced by one or two games, which makes it possible he could be available to play in a Week 9 game against the Rams or the Week 10 game against the Saints. He must maintain his good behavior for commissioner Roger Goodell to reduce the penalty. Under terms of his suspension, the league has allowed Smith to be in the team's facility for meetings and conditioning, although he has not been allowed to practice with the team.
