SANTA CLARA (CBS/AP) — San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh avoided questions about linebacker Ahmad Brooks’ legal issues on Monday.

Brooks allegedly hit teammate Lamar Divens in the head with a bottle multiple times during an altercation on June 8 but avoided prosecution when the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office declined to file charges because of insufficient evidence.

Brooks has met with team officials regarding the incident but Harbaugh declined to say what, if any, discipline the veteran linebacker would face.

“Had conversations [with him] but not that we’re going to talk about out here,” Harbaugh said. “I’m not publicly discussing what our conversations have been with Ahmad or any of our players.”

The 49ers held the third day of training camp practice for rookies only on Monday. Veterans report on Wednesday.
