Michael Crabtree's San Carlos-based attorney issued a statement on Saturday saying that his client has cooperated with investigators regarding an alleged sexual assault last weekend and that "we have confidence in the process."
"Michael Crabtree voluntarily met with the San Francisco Police Department and provided a statement," Joshua Bentley wrote. "... Out of respect and integrity for the process, we have no further comment at this time."
According to the 49ers, Crabtree is in Atlanta and will play in Sunday's NFC Championship game. Crabtree is the team's leading receiver -- the first 49er to surpass 1,000 receiving yards since 2003 -- and he had two touchdowns and 119 yards last week against Green Bay. The alleged assault occurred in a San Francisco hotel early Sunday morning, hours after the 49ers had beaten the Packers.
