The "San Francisco Chronicle" is the latest organization to drop the Redskins nickname.

"NBC Sports" says the newspaper has joined the "Kansas City Star," "Slate" and Peter King of "Sports Illustrated," who've decided to no longer print the term "Redskins."

It is not known if an official announcement is coming as the 49ers play at Washington on November 25th.

Team owner Daniel Snyder has said he has no plans to change the name that some Native American groups consider a racial epithet.
