49er Demarcus Dobbs arrested after single-car accident

You can fill in one inactive for the 49ers’ game against the Rams right now.

Defensive tackle/tight end Demarcus Dobbs will not travel with the team to St. Louis after he was arrested early Friday following a single-car accident. Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com reports that Dobbs has been charged with a pair of misdemeanors for the accident, which occured around 3:45 a.m. in Santa Clara.

“He was involved in a crash and we suspect he was under the influence of alcohol,” California Highway Patrol Officer D.J. Sarabia said. “He was not injured and he was also arrested for possession of marijuana.”

Dobbs has been a key part of the teams’ special teams units in all 11 games this season. He turned 26 on Friday, which may explain the late night. The 49ers released a statement on Friday about their response to the arrest.

“The 49ers are aware of the recent matter involving Demarcus Dobbs. We are gathering the relevant facts as it pertains to this situation,” the statement reads. “We have been in contact with both Demarcus and the League office. He will not be making the trip to St. Louis, and we will reserve further comment at this time.”

The 49ers promoted linebacker Michael Wilhoite from the practice squad. Per Maiocco, he should be active and playing on special teams Sunday.
