Foster (neck) is first scheduled to appear in court Feb. 28 after being arrested in Tuscaloosa, Ala. on Jan. 12 for marijuana possession, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports.
The NFL will wait and see how the legal process plays out for Foster before levying any discipline for the arrest, the first of two for the linebacker this offseason. He was also arrested Sunday in Los Gatos, Calif. on charges of domestic violence and threats and possession of an assault weapon, though a court date for that incident hasn't been set.
Foster (neck) was arrested on charges relating to domestic violence Sunday in Los Gatos, California, Sarah Ravani and Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle report.
This marks Foster's second arrest within a month in what has been a nightmare start to the offseason for the young linebacker. His first occurred Jan. 12 for possession of marijuana. Any sort of punishment from the 49ers and the NFL won't come until after this pair of incidents work their way through the legal system.
Foster sustained a stinger in Sunday's 34-13 win over the Rams and did not return, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan indicated Foster could have returned, but the game was well in hand early with the Rams resting up for the playoffs. The 23-year-old was dealing with a stinger following last week's win over Jacksonville, and aggravated the injury Sunday but will have plenty of recovery time with the 49ers' season drawing to a close.
San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday that Foster (shoulder) will be limited in practices this week, but the linebacker is expected to suit up Sunday against the Rams, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Foster sustained a right shoulder stinger in the Week 16 win over the Jaguars, but played 61 snaps during the contest and collected five tackles. Per Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee, Shanahan said Foster's stinger isn't related to the surgery he required prior to the 2017 NFL Draft to repair a torn labrum, so the 49ers don't seem too concerned about his health heading into the season finale. Foster should take on a full workload Sunday if he doesn't endure any setbacks during practice this week.
Foster suffered a shoulder stinger against Jacksonville on Sunday but is expected to play against the Rams in Week 17, Bay Area News Group's Cam Inman reports.
Foster's IDP owners might want to follow his practice participation levels throughout the week in case the 49ers decide to play it safe with their young star linebacker in a meaningless contest, but he wasn't expected to miss any time immediately following the upset of Jacksonville.
