Reuben Foster rejoins 49ers on Thursday

Reuben Foster has rejoined the 49ers, reporting to the team’s training complex Thursday.

The linebacker had stayed away from the 49ers’ offseason work since domestic violence charges were filed in April, with the team waiting for the case to play out in court.

California Superior Court Judge Nona Klippen ruled Wednesday that insufficient evidence exists to proceed with domestic violence charges against Foster. The judge also reduced a charge of possession of an assault weapon to a misdemeanor, scheduling a pre-trial hearing for June 6.

Foster’s ex-girlfriend recanted accusations against him in a hearing last week.

Foster, 24, still faces a marijuana possession charge from his January 12 arrest in Alabama, with a court date scheduled for June 20. He is subject to league discipline for that arrest under the NFL’s substances of abuse policy.

  1. Countdown to his next suspension. This guy will mess up again guaranteed. Anybody that gets into it with a coach at the combine (the biggest interview of his life) just doesn’t get it.

    You seem almost excited because if he’s cut the first team to sign him will undoubtedly be the Raiduhhhs.

    Like Zeke? no Zeke never had the gats Foster was packing.

  4. I bet the league will suspend him for marijuana possession and the weapons charge. The league does not like 49er players and treats them more harshly than players from other teams. In fact, the Beast Mold was never suspended after pleading guilty to the lesser charge of reckless driving when he was charged with DUI, while he was playing for Seattle.

  5. Getting Foster back along with Malcolm Smith and adding Sherman to our Secondary with an offense that should put up 25+ a game and this can easily be a top 10 Defense. It got much better with Garoppolo starting and adding Cassius Marsh. Now hopefully Attaochu plays great and Armstead comes back strong along with the young guys in Thomas, Buckner, Harold and Blair. If we get the pass rush going and get more sacks the sky is the limit for this Defense!
