49ers want Foster to stay away for now

Reuben Foster will not participate in 49ers team activities until his domestic violence case is over. More

The 49ers hierarchy of CEO Jed York, coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch released a joint statement Sunday explaining the move: "Reuben Foster will not participate in team activities as he is tending to his legal matters". He is scheduled to meet with the team this week, a sitdown that could determine his future with the franchise. The 24-year-old linebacker is accused of physically attacking his 28-year-old girlfriend at their Los Gatos home in February.

Prosecutors have dropped a misdemeanor ammunition charge against San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster, but his three felony charges for domestic violence and possessing an assault weapon remain, authorities announced Monday.

The district attorney's office cited the injunction issued last June by a U.S. District Court judge as the reason to drop the misdemeanor charge regarding the large capacity magazine. If found guilty, he could be sentenced to 11 years in prison.

"Our focus is on holding accountable those who hurt their intimate partners", Prosecutor Kevin Smith said in a statement. "Our office handles between four and five thousand domestic violence cases each year".


Foster, selected by the 49ers with the 31st overall pick in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, was charged with felony domestic violence against his live-in girlfriend on Thursday.

San Francisco released a statement Thursday acknowledging the charges against Foster. "We will continue to follow this serious matter", the statement read.

"Look, we hate it very much when any player that we had here, who did a great job for us here at Alabama - great job - in terms of how he represented the university, how he represented our program, the contribution that he made to our program, and, obviously, we have a player that you'll probably ask me about that has legal issues - Reuben Foster", Saban told reporters. The victim told responding county sheriff's deputies and Los Gatos police that Foster had dragged her out by her hair, threw her out of the house and punched her in the head eight to 10 times, according to the district attorney's office. She was taken to an area hospital with bruises and a ruptured eardrum. Foster just finished a solid rookie season and was expected to be a key part of the 49ers defense going forward. He has been charged with second-degree marijuana possession.

Foster could face discipline from the league for both infractions.
