49ers suspend broadcaster for bizarre comments about Lamar Jackson’s skin color

New York Daily News Sports 1 week ago

The 49ers suspended radio analyst Tim Ryan for his bizarre comments about Lamar Jackson following the 49ers 20-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Ryan said that part of the reason Jackson was so effective, rushing for 101 yards and a touchdown, was because he was able to hide the football due his “dark skin.”

On KNBR’s “Murph and Mac” show Ryan said of Jackson: “He’s really good at that ball fake, Lamar Jackson, but when you consider his dark skin color with a dark football with a dark uniform, you could not see that thing.”

In the aftermath, Ryan issued an apology during 49ers practice, expressing regret for his choice of words.

Ryan will be suspended for the upcoming game against the Saints. Considering the Saints tend to wear all black uniforms at home, this might be for the best. The last the 49ers want is Ryan getting confused when Alvin Kamara takes a handoff.
