San Francisco 49ers suspended running back Brandon Jacobs on Monday for the remainder of the season citing conduct detrimental to the team, reports Comcast SportsNet BayArea.

Earlier in the day, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh was vague when asked about Jacobs' role on team and offered multiple "no comments" when asked if he was even still on the team.

Jacobs, who was not active for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, came to the 49ers in the offseason after spending seven seasons with the New York Giants and took to Twitter on Saturday to complain about his role on the team.  Jacobs has played in two games this season, rushing five times for seven yards.

Here is part of what Harbaugh said according to the Sacramento Bee. 

Have you spoken to him?

JH: "No comment."

Is he still part of the team?

JH: "I'll go with the fifth amendment. I have no comment on that."

Did you know when you acquired him that he had a tendency to complain about playing time?

JH: "Yeah, at this time, at this hour, I choose to have no comment."
