Baalke Says ‘It Remains To Be Seen’ If Ray McDonald Will Play For San Francisco 49ers on Sunday
The San Francisco 49ers have yet to make a decision on whether Ray McDonald will take the field for the season opener on Sunday in Dallas.
“That remains to be seen,” said general manager Trent Baalke during an impromptu press conference on Tuesday.
“Domestic violence is unacceptable and certainly won’t be tolerated.”
McDonald, who was arrested early Sunday morning, will be practicing with the team on Tuesday. According to tight end Vernon Davis, between 50 to 75 percent of the team was at the party where the incident. Baalke, who said he’s spoken with McDonald twice since the arrest, also discussed the team’s investigation process.
“We’re gathering as much information from as many different sources as we can. Who the sources are, I’m not going to go into detail, but we’re certainly gathering information.”
So, why not just deactivate McDonald for the Week 1 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys?
“I don’t know if we have enough information at this point to make that decision.”
The team leads the league in arrests in the last three years, is this embarrassing?
“Well, I think you can answer that question yourself.”
