We take a look at the news that Michael Crabtree is involved in an investigation for sexual assault.

The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree has been interviewed regarding allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman last Sunday. The woman has alleged Crabtree assaulted her in an unnamed hotel following the 49ers win over the Green Bay Packers.

Crabtree has not been detained or arrested in the incident, but rather he was questioned by the Special Victims' Unit with his lawyer present. Crabtree has also agreed to further interviews in the future about the alleged assault.

At this point, the Chronicle indicated Crabtree is expected to be playing on Sunday in the NFC Championship Game. The 49ers either will have the offseason, or a bye week next week, so we'll have to wait and see what comes of this then or beyond. Obviously we hope this is nothing, but we'll have to wait and see. We'll keep a close eye on this as the story develops.
