49ers blocking Reuben Foster from team activities during legal process

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.

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. The 49ers said in a statement that Foster's future with the team will be "determined by the information revealed during the legal process".

Foster was also charged with felony possession of an assault weapon and misdemeanor possession of a high-capacity magazine.

According to authorities, Foster attacked a 28-year-old woman during an argument at their home in Los Gatos.

"Our focus is on holding accountable those who hurt their intimate partners", said deputy DA Kevin Smith in a prepared statement. "This is way beyond a simple domestic violence case", says Steven Clark, legal analyst and former prosecutor. Foster's case is more serious and could last into the regular season. One player who will not take part is linebacker Reuben Foster, who is facing multiple felony charges following an altercation and arrest at his residence on February 11.

"The 49ers organization is aware of today's disturbing charges regarding Reuben Foster". The alleged victim suffered bruises and a ruptured eardrum.

Per the release, the alleged victim flagged down a stranger's vehicle following an altercation with Foster in which he physically threw her out of their home, pulled her hair and punched her in the head eight to 10 times.

The 49ers made Foster the 31st-overall pick out of Alabama in last year's draft.

Foster will miss Phase 1 and 2 of the offseason, and presumably OTAs and mini camp, too. Foster was named the Defensive Rookie of the Month for November during the 2017 season.
