49ers WR Michael Crabtree Says Assault Probe Wasn't A Distraction
In the afterglow of an NFC Championship Game win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree dismissed the idea he was distracted by off-the-field issues this week.
"Not at all, man. This is football. Stuff is going to happen, you know?" Crabtree said, via Tom Rock of Newsday. "It's just how you react and how you bounce back. I'm a football player, this is what I do for a living, and it's fun for me and I just can't wait to get back out there."
Crabtree was interviewed by San Francisco police for two hours as part of a sexual assault investigation. A league source "highly, highly doubted" Crabtree will face charges, according to ESPN.com. A second woman came forward to back Crabtree's version of events on the night in question, leading the 49ers to believe the investigation will not go any further.
Crabtree flew with the team to Atlanta and started in San Francisco's 28-24 win that advanced the Niners to Super Bowl XLVII.
