49ers blocking Reuben Foster from team activities during legal process
The San Francisco 49ers are preventing Reuben Foster from participating in team activities while his legal process plays out.
Jed York, John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan released a joint statement on Sunday in which they discussed Foster’s future with the team.
They said Foster “will not participate in team activities as he is tending to his legal matters. As previously stated, his future with the team will be determined by the information revealed during the legal process.”
Foster has been charged with domestic abuse for allegedly rupturing a woman’s ear drum. The charge stemmed from a February arrest, which marked Foster’s second in two months. He was also arrested in January for second-degree marijuana possession.
Foster came to the 49ers with red flags and slipped in the draft. He had 72 tackles in 10 games as a rookie last season. The Niners indicated in a statement during the week that they were considering releasing Foster.
