Following the announced charges against San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster, safety Jaquiski Tartt offered some support to his teammate and friend.


Foster faces charges of domestic violence with an allegation that he inflicted great bodily injury, forcefully attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime, and possession of an assault weapon — all of which are felonies.

"On February 11, the victim flagged down a stranger's car driving on Shannon Road to call 911," read a release issued by the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office. "She called police. The victim told responding sheriff's deputies and Los Gatos police that Foster dragged her by her hair, physically threw her out of the house, and punched her in the head 8 to 10 times."

The alleged victim was the live-in girlfriend of Foster, who if convicted, will face time in prison.

"Foster, 24, physically attacked the 28-year-old woman during a February argument at their Los Gatos home, leaving her bruised and with a ruptured eardrum," read the release.

Foster remains on the team for now. "We will continue to follow this serious matter," said the 49ers via a statement issued on Thursday. "Reuben is aware that his place in our organization is under great scrutiny and will depend on what is learned through the legal process."

In Tartt's defense, he simply offered prayers to Foster and did not comment on the charges themselves or the incident. Tartt may merely be praying for Foster to get the help that he needs if the allegations are true. Still, the responses from fans via Twitter were critical of Tartt's comment. Below is just a small sampling.
