Reuben Foster on KNBR: ‘I’ll be full-go’ for training camp

Apr 29, 2017 at 9:00 AM--


Following the 2016 collegiate football season, former Alabama linebacker turned San Francisco 49ers rookie Reuben Foster 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.

There were some who were skeptical that Foster would be available for the start of the 2017 NFL season and others who had reported that the injury would require a second surgery, placing his availability for the entire season at further risk. After all, the last time 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan saw Foster, the linebacker's arm was in a sling.

On Friday afternoon, during the introductory press conference for Solomon Thomas and himself, Foster assured the local media that he would not require a second surgery to repair the injury.

The 49ers rookie joined KNBR on Friday and confirmed again that he would not require additional surgery and would be available for the team's training camp in late July. "OTAs, I'll be limited and all," Foster said. "Training camp, I'll be full-go."

Foster was asked if the injury would require a second surgery.

"No surgery," Foster said. "Because I had a scan. I scanned it and what they was talking about was the anchor in my shoulder and the light had glimpsed it -- some light had glimpsed it a certain way and make it look like it's not healed all the way. It's getting in the healing process because I'm like 13 weeks outside the surgery.

"But no more surgeries. It's going to be completely healed before training camp."

Schefter: 49ers, NFL teams may only be allowed 75 to 80 players at training camp

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that NFL teams may be required to limit the number of players who participate in training camps across the league when they begin later this month. At least, they are scheduled to start later this month. That would mean as many as 10 to 15 players from each team's 90-player roster might have to sit out meetings and on-field work. The idea is, of course, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as the NFL continues to search for ways to increase the safety of its players and the chances of an uninterrupted season. "One source said he believed it's likely that teams will go to camp with 80-man rosters," writes Schefter,

ESPN recently took a look at all 32 NFL teams and named three training camp "nuggets" for each. What did that include for the San Francisco 49ers? It all starts with the Super Bowl LIV loss in February to the Kansas City Chiefs. ESPN notes that San Francisco will try to become the third NFC team to lose the Super Bowl and return to the big game the next season. Only the 1971 Dallas Cowboys and the 1974 Vikings have accomplished that among the conference teams. Dallas ended up winning Super Bowl VI against the Miami Dolphins while Minnesota lost Super Bowl IX to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Writes ESPN: "The past few teams

Arik Armstead continues offseason training with a familiar ex-49ers defender

Defensive lineman Arik Armstead is working hard this offseason to prove that his team-leading 10-sack 2019 campaign was no fluke, and after signing a lucrative five-year deal to remain with the San Francisco 49ers. It looks like Armstead is training with a familiar face, too. San Jose-area photographer Pierre Whitsey comes through again with some photos from San Jose State on Monday, showing Armstead training with former teammate DeForest Buckner. The 49ers in March traded Buckner to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for the No. 13 overall pick, which, after trading down one spot, ended up becoming the selection of Buckner's replacement — defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw. You can indulge in a small sample of Whitsey's photos of the two defenders
