49ers' Ray McDonald has hearing PPD

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- A court hearing for Ray McDonald, originally scheduled for Monday, has been postponed as San Jose police continue their investigation into the San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman's Aug. 31 arrest on suspicion of domestic violence, according to the Santa Clara district attorney's office.

The 49ers, from coach Jim Harbaugh to general manager Trent Baalke to CEO Jed York, have cited "due process" in keeping McDonald on the field and allowing him to play in the season opener.

McDonald has yet to be charged.

Once the investigation is complete, the findings will be forwarded to the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office, which would decide whether charges will be filed.
