As is usual in cases when teams are scrambling to find out information, the first step is to acknowledge the information they’re scrambling to gather.

Thus, the 49ers have responded to the report that quarterback Colin Kaepernick is being investigated for a possible sexual assault.

“The 49ers organization is aware of the recent media report regarding Colin Kaepernick and is in the process of gathering the pertinent facts,” the team said in a statement, via CSNBayArea.com.

TMZ reported that the investigation was in its “beginning stages,” so it’s entirely possible we don’t hear much from the 49ers until more facts are gathered.
