Foster will not participate in 49ers team activities

Foster will not participate in 49ers team activities

The 49ers released a statement last Thursday, indicating they were not going to cut Reuben Foster - at least for the time being - shortly after he was charged by the Santa Clara County DA's office for three felonies, including domestic violence. "Reuben is aware that his place in our organization is under great scrutiny and will depend on what is learned through the legal process", the team said on Thursday.

The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office said the charges stem from a violent attack on his live-in girlfriend at the couple's Los Gatos home on February 11th. His plea hearing is scheduled for April 30.

Foster made the Pro Football Writers Association's All-Rookie team for the 2017 season after the 49ers traded up to select him with the 31choice in last year's draft.

Prosecutors said Foster was charged with three felonies - domestic violence with an allegation that he inflected great bodily injury, forcefully preventing a victim from reporting a crime and illegal possession of an assault weapon.

As a result, it was up to the 49ers as to whether he would participate in any offseason workouts. Foster is also being charged with misdemeanour possession of large capacity weapon magazine.

With Foster unavailable, the 49ers' top two linebackers this spring will be Malcolm Smith and recent free-agent addition Korey Toomer. He was named the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Month for November and finished the season ranked second on the team in tackles (72).

Neither 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan, general manager John York nor CEO Jed York have commented. The report went on to say Foster dragged her by her hair, physically threw her out of the house and punched her in the head eight to 10 times.

Foster, who has been working out on his own at the team facility since his legal troubles began, will not do so alongside his teammates, although the team is likely to continue to provide support and assistance in other ways while the matter goes through the court system. "We don't condone this kind of behavior and certainly we'd not like to see any of our players have any kind of issues or the victims to suffer any at all". But Coyle is recovering from shoulder surgery and isn't expected to be cleared for practice until later in the offseason. The voluntary sessions begin with strength and conditioning, then move to on-field work with coaches and finally the so-called OTA practice sessions, which end in June.
