Reuben Foster remains in jail, awaiting a court appearance

It’s looking less and less likely that 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster will be playing for the 49ers on Sunday.

Foster, arrested on Saturday night in Tampa on one count of misdemeanor domestic violence, remains in jail on Sunday morning, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports California. Foster will appear before a judge, by video monitor, at some point this morning. Bail likely will be set at that time.

The 49ers have issued no statements about Foster, and no comment about the situation appears on the team’s Twitter page or official website. When Foster faced domestic violence charges in the offseason, the team seem prepared to move on from the 2017 first-round draft pick if he were found to be legally responsible. After the alleged victim recanted, the case against Foster fell apart.

Foster had been listed as questionable for the game against the Buccaneers with a hamstring injury.

  1. Statement from the 49ers

    We are totally against domestic violence in ever aspect. However, if Reuben is once again able to intimidate the witness, and get the case thrown out, we will once again pretend that nothing happened and welcome him back into the fold

  2. Time for Reuben to be cut loose and learn some tough life lessons……just bc you can run quickly and tackle doesn’t give you the ability to do whatever you want.

  3. Whatever occurred here, it was and is very clear that the previous incident and its dismissal did not involve witness intimidation. As rare as it is, it was a false accusation and was shown to be so on multiple fronts.

    Innocent !!!! Until proven guilty, right ?

    Right. But where there is smoke, there is usually fire, especially when it’s not the first time.

  5. I just don’t get how a grown man doesn’t have more self control. He gets mad and loses his temper and starts swinging. Ok, lots of guys do that, doesn’t make it right but fine people have issues controlling themselves sometimes. But when you have millions on the line how do you lack the awareness to get the help you need to control yourself? He can’t even pull the old, I was raised that way routine given the warning he had before.

  6. Not healthy enough to play but healthy enough to beat the ever loving crap out of his G/F….. And SF traded BACK into the first round for this guy, to bad he didnt have a bunch of red warning flags pre draft giving the 49ers a heads up what kinda guy he is. O wait…

  7. “Always trust your first instinct”

    The 49ers first instinct was to ignore his problems and pretend they didn’t happen. He had well-documented off-the-field issues when he was drafted. He might have been a top-10 pick if not for all his baggage.

  8. SEC! SEC! S…E…C?
    Why is it that players like this are protected (by attorneys and the media) going into the draft? All this does is enable more players to do the same since they know that no matter what, they will get drafted.
    The media should publicly shame ANY college player that commits domestic violence or other crimes with the mindset being that if a few college idiots are sacrificed, then maybe fewer college players will commit crimes.
    But no…..the media enjoys and relies on those crimes for content…and profit.

  9. Entitled people don’t believe laws are made for them to follow. This guy has been made to feel, ever since it was determined he can run and tackle, that he can do as he wants. Let’s see if the 49ers stand behind their previously announced domestic policy statement.

    Remember when the Clarans said this guy was the steal of the draft? What a dumpsterfire. Organization…players…fanbase…what a straight bunch of losers

    —————————-

    1.) What the hell is a Claran?
    2.) Your team drafted Frank Clark
    3.) Like Smokey after a loss “you be quiet” but when you win against a sub .500 team “you be talkin’ again”

    The 49ers has an actual dynasty ….not one of the one-year variety.

    I think you might be a bit early on that argument. Right now it’s just charged and in custody until posted bail.
