49ers officially suspend broadcaster Tim Ryan for saying Ravens QB Jackson had advantage due to ‘dark skin color with a dark football’

The 49ers have suspended Tim Ryan over comments he made on a Bay Area sports talk radio show Monday in which he said Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, is exceptional at faking handoffs because of his “dark skin color with a dark football.”

The comments came in the first couple of minutes of Ryan’s weekly segment with KNBR’s “Murph and Mac” morning radio show as the hosts asked the San Jose native about Jackson’s performance in Sunday’s 20-17 victory over the 49ers. Jackson, a front-runner to be named NFL MVP, rushed and passed for more than 100 yards in a game between two of the league’s top teams.
