Santa Clara, CA (Sports Network) - The San Francisco 49ers decided to part ways with Brandon Jacobs on Monday, releasing the veteran running back.
Jacobs was hampered by knee issues since the preseason, and was only able to participate in two games, rushing for seven yards on five carries.
The 30-year-old Jacobs spent the first seven years of his NFL career with the New York Giants, racking up 4,849 yards and 56 touchdowns. San Francisco inked him back on Apr. 6.
