Reuben Foster will not participate in 49ers team activities
49ers linebacker Reuben Foster will not participate in team activities as his domestic violence case plays out, the team announced Sunday.
Foster was charged with felony domestic violence against his live-in girlfriend, the Santa Clara District Attorney’s office announced Thursday.
“The 49ers organization is aware of today’s disturbing charges regarding Reuben Foster. We will continue to follow this serious matter,” the statement read. “Reuben is aware that his place in our organization is under great scrutiny and will depend on what is learned through the legal process.”
Foster was originally arrested Feb. 12 on charges relating to domestic violence, threats and possession of an assault weapon. The release notes the victim told police, “Foster dragged her by her hair, physically threw her out of the house, and punched her in the head eight to 10 times.”
Foster is scheduled to enter a plea at a hearing on April 30.
Below is a breakdown of the Browns’ schedule in 2018. Cleveland’s regular-season schedule, including dates and kickoff times, will be posted after it is made available by the NFL.
Toughest tests: The road schedule features a brutal outdoor game at Denver and indoor game at New Orleans. Those are tough places to play for any team. The home schedule features playoff teams from last season in Kansas City, Carolina and Atlanta. The Chargers, the last team the Browns beat in the regular season, also visit FirstEnergy Stadium.
Biggest breaks: The Jets present one clear chance for the Browns to score a victory. Cleveland played three games against AFC North teams in the first four weeks last season and hung with the Steelers in a 21-18 loss in Week 1. Look for Cleveland to get a division opponent early in the same situation.
