Reuben Foster will not participate in 49ers team activities

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster appears for his arraignment at the Santa Clara County Hall of Justice in San Jose

Linebacker Reuben Foster, who faces three felony charges including domestic violence, will not take part in the 49ers' offseason conditioning program, the club announced Sunday evening. San Francisco begins its offseason program Monday.

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

He was also charged with one misdemeanor count for possession of a large capacity ammunition magazine. He is scheduled to meet with the team this week, a sitdown that could determine his future with the franchise.

According to the DA's office, on February 11th the victim flagged down a stranger's auto driving on Shannon Road in Los Gatos and asked for help.

"Our focus is on holding accountable those who hurt their intimate partners", Prosecutor Kevin Smith said in a statement. After an infamous domestic-violence incident involving former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, the National Football League granted Commissioner Roger Goodell authority to give players a baseline six-game suspension for domestic violence allegations, even without a conviction, with the discretion to decrease or lengthen the time based on the circumstances of a case. He was welcomed back to the team when the court case concluded, but was cut a year later following an ugly incident in San Francisco in which the fullback attacked an elderly man and his son in a hotel.

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". In a statement, the 49ers organizations said: "We will continue to follow this serious matter". "Reuben is aware that his place in our organization is under great scrutiny and will depend on what is learned through the legal process". The report went on to say Foster dragged her by her hair, physically threw her out of the house and punched her in the head eight to 10 times. Both are illegal to possess in California.

The NFL has said it is monitoring the Foster case but has made no announcement of any penalties or suspensions for the second-year player. He has been charged with second-degree marijuana possession.

Foster last Thursday was charged with three felonies, two of which are related to domestic violence, and a misdemeanor for possession of ammunition for an assault rifle.

Either case could lead to discipline from the National Football League, up to and including suspension.
