Reuben Foster calls second shoulder surgery reports ‘not accurate’

Apr 28, 2017 at 2:44 PM--


Prior to Friday afternoon, the last time San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan saw Reuben Foster, his arm was in a sling. Following the 2016 season, the former Alabama linebacker underwent surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder. It was an injury that prevented the linebacker from participating in the NFL Scouting Combine.

Foster has insisted that he is fully healed. "It's 90-percent," he told the media on Thursday following his selection. "I'll be ready for training camp."

Shanahan said that the team's doctors and trainers felt good about the recovery process and where Foster is right now. Foster agrees with the assessment.

"I'm making big progress," Foster said on Friday at the introductory press conference for Solomon Thomas and himself. "I'll be limited at OTAs. Training camp, I'll be full-go but if it's my decision, I think I can go now."

There had been reports that the injury would require a second surgery which might put his availability for at least part of the regular season into question. "That's not accurate at all," Foster said. "I'm fine. I'm on schedule."

The Arizona Cardinals went into Levi's Stadium on Sunday and upset the defending NFC champion San Francisco 49ers 24-20. It was not the start Richard Sherman and his team wanted for what they hoped would be a bounce-back season in response to February's Super Bowl defeat. Sherman was asked after the game what the 49ers can take away from the loss, and what it might mean for the team moving forward. "It just comes down to executing down the stretch," Sherman responded. "Any time you get to play, we got to knock the rust off some things, some communication things we have to do better, but I think overall, we feel good about where we are. "They played a good game. They made some plays at the end. [Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray] made some plays with

Fred Warner feels 49ers can overcome injuries while Trent Williams calls loss of Nick Bosa 'heartbreaking'

The San Francisco 49ers leave MetLife Stadium on Sunday with a costly 31-13 victory over the New York Jets. Very costly. The team watched as quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (high-ankle sprain), and defensive linemen Nick Bosa (likely an ACL injury) and Solomon Thomas (knee) left the game with injuries. They did not return. Running backs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman also suffered knee injuries, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. That is quite a price to pay for the win. Linebacker Fred Warner felt for his teammates but believes the 49ers have the depth to overcome the injuries, if necessary. "I think this team's built for that," Warner said after the game. "You mention how we've got a lot of depth, and over the years,
