The woman accusing free agent DE Ray McDonald of sexually assaulting her claims McDonald did so after she passed out.
The woman says McDonald raped her after she "hit her head on the ground" by a pool, passing out. Her story gets suspicious when she admits she woke up the next day and continued to party with McDonald and 49ers OLB Aldon Smith. McDonald has not been formally charged with any crime.

49ers waived LE Ray McDonald.

It's been a long time coming for McDonald. Wednesday's announcement that McDonald is a suspect in an alleged rape from last week that took place at his home was the final straw for the 49ers. It also helps that they're out of the playoff race. McDonald has had a number of off-field red flags, ranging from DUI, all-night partying, felony domestic violence arrest in August, and now this. The 49ers will eat over $4.6 million in dead money against the 2015 salary cap by releasing him.

49ers LE Ray McDonald is being investigated by the San Jose Police Department on a rape allegation that was reported last Tuesday.

A search warrant has been issued for McDonald's home, and the judge signed it on Tuesday. McDonald was in the news over summer after he was arrested on felony domestic violence charges. Those charges were eventually dropped. But he now has a potential sexual assault case on his hands. It'll be interesting to see if the 49ers choose to stand by McDonald's side as they did over summer.

49ers LE Ray McDonald briefly exited Week 13 against the Seahawks with a finger injury.

McDonald injured his finger bracing a fall in the first quarter. He missed three series before returning to the game.

The Santa Clara county District Attorney's office has decided not to charge Ray McDonald in his domestic violence case.

The DA's office is citing insufficient evidence. It means the 49ers can now claim they are justified for refusing to discipline McDonald in any way even though he was arrested on felony charges for an incident with his pregnant fiancee in August. However, his fiancee reportedly had visible injuries and called 911. "Injuries consistent with restraint and ensuing scuffle rather than an attack," the DA said. McDonald has started all nine games at left end for the 49ers.

The San Jose Mercury News reports 49ers LE Ray McDonald is likely to escape domestic violence charges.

The Santa Clara District Attorney's Office is expected to make a formal announcement soon. McDonald allegedly roughed up his pregnant fiancee back in August. He's been playing ever since, with the 49ers letting the case play out instead of suspending McDonald from within. He's started all seven games.

49ers LE Ray McDonald's hearing on domestic violence allegations has been canceled.

The Santa Clara District Attorney's office tweeted there will not be a "new court date unless or until chargers are filed." McDonald will continue to suit up while the investigation is ongoing.
Sat, Sep 27, 2014 09:48:00 AM

49ers LE Ray McDonald's hearing on domestic violence allegations has been postponed.

"The investigation of the McDonald matter continues," the Santa Clara District Attorney announced. "Monday's court date will be postponed. A later date will be announced by the court." McDonald has yet to be charged. The 49ers are allowing McDonald to play while the investigation is ongoing.

49ers coach Jim Harbaugh confirmed LE Ray McDonald will play in Sunday's opener against the Cowboys.

Despite his recent arrest for domestic violence, the 49ers are letting McDonald play as the legal process runs its course. San Francisco is still without OLB Aldon Smith, ILB Navorro Bowman, and NT Glenn Dorsey in its front seven.

49ers DE Ray McDonald is practicing in full for Week 1.

With the district attorney apparently not close to pressing charges, it appears as if McDonald will be active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. In dire need of McDonald's services, the 49ers are content to let the legal process play out.
Thu, Sep 4, 2014 07:36:00 PM

49ers DE Ray McDonald's status for Sunday's opener "remains to be seen."

"(There's) due process," GM Trent Baalke said Tuesday. "We're still in fact-finding mode trying to get as much information as we can. We'll have more knowledge today and certainly more knowledge the next day, moving forward. Nothing's been determined at this point." Baalke also claimed the team would handle McDonald's discipline, not the NFL. The CBA dictates that the league handles discipline in cases like McDonald's. Much like they did with Aldon Smith last season, it sounds like the 49ers are going to let McDonald play Sunday.

49ers DE Ray McDonald was arrested on felony domestic violence charges at 5:30am Sunday morning.

Sources tell NBC Bay Area's Damian Trujillo that McDonald's alleged victim was pregnant. He was officially booked for "inflicting injury on a spouse or cohabitant." San Jose police are reportedly saying that there were other 49ers players present at the time of the incident. Note that Roger Goodell just finished apologizing to owners about how he handled the Ray Rice situation, and promised to enforce a more stringent set of rules for domestic violence that includes a six-game ban for first offenders. McDonald, who also got a DUI in 2010, has started 45 games over the last three seasons.

The 49ers have restructured DE Ray McDonald's contract.

McDonald would have counted $5.34 million against the 49ers' 2014 cap, but his restructuring will decrease that number. The Niners now have more cap space for the possible extensions of Michael Crabtree, G Mike Iupati and holdout OG Alex Boone.

49ers LE Ray McDonald will undergo surgery to repair his torn biceps.

McDonald tore his biceps in Week 5 but played through it and ended up starting 14 games, racking up 37 tackles and 3.5 sacks. He graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 22 3-4 end out of 45 qualifiers. McDonald was particularly strong against the run. He's under contract for $3.5 million in 2014.
Tue, Jan 21, 2014 12:12:00 PM

49ers DE Ray McDonald has been diagnosed with a right biceps strain.

An MRI ruled out structural damage and he's considered day to day. McDonald's status for Sunday's game against the Cardinals remains in question, but he's not expected to miss an extended period of time.
