Will Reuben Foster be welcome at 49ers offseason program?

Will Reuben Foster be welcome at 49ers offseason program?

According to local prosecutors, Foster's 28-year-old girlfriend had to flag down a passing vehicle after he threw her out of his Los Gatos house.

However, the San Francisco 49ers' second-year starter does face three felony counts - domestic violence, forcefully attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime and possessing an assault weapon.

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster won't participate in the offseason program while he tends to legal matters related to his domestic violence charges. The 49ers said in a statement that Foster's future with the team will be "determined by the information revealed during the legal process".

The 49ers open offseason workouts on Monday.

The DA's office said Friday it is prepared to prosecute Foster even if the reported victim ends up not testifying, an issue that stymied previous domestic-violence cases against players.

In addition to the criminal charges, Foster is subject to potential NFL discipline under the league's personal conduct policy, which mandates a six-game suspension for a first-time domestic violence offense.

That same evening, he broke the league's record for 3-pointers made by a rookie, previously set by Damian Lillard. The rookie underwent an X-ray at halftime, which came back negative.

The 49ers released a statement attributed to chief executive officer Jed York, general manager John Lynch and coach Kyle Shanahan on Sunday night saying that Foster will not be participating in team activities as he goes through the legal process stemming from his February 11 arrest.

Investigators said the alleged assault by Foster left his live-in girlfriend bruised and with a ruptured ear drum.

Foster appeared in Santa Clara County Superior Court for arraignment Thursday afternoon. "He is now facing two strikes, under the three strikes law".

After Foster was charged last week, the Niners issued a statement saying they meant to follow the matter and noted that Foster "is aware that his place in our organization is under great scrutiny and will depend on what is learned through the legal process".

The injunction, issued last June by U.S. District Judge Roger T. Benitez, involves Proposition 63, a 2016 voter-approved initiative that outlawed ammunition magazines holding more than 10 rounds, requires background checks for bullet purchases, criminalizes the failure to report lost or stolen guns, and strengthened avenues to remove guns from felons upon being convicted.

The NFL team announced on Sunday night that the former Alabama All-American would not take part in the offseason program - at least not until Foster's legal troubles are resolved.
