John Lynch says Reuben Foster can rejoin 49ers on Thursday

May 23, 2018 at 4:29 PM--


With the domestic violence charges against him dropped, San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster will rejoin his teammates on Thursday, according to general manager John Lynch.

"The organization is aware the domestic violence charges against Reuben Foster were dismissed earlier today," Lynch said via a statement issued to the media. "As a result, he will have the opportunity to rejoin the team tomorrow. It has been made clear to Reuben that his place on this team is one that must continue to be earned. We will continue to monitor the remaining misdemeanor charge."

Foster was facing felony 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. Judge Nona Klippen ruled on Wednesday that there was insufficient evidence to proceed with the domestic violence case against the 49ers linebacker.

The judge dropped the first two charges against Foster and reduced the weapon charge to a misdemeanor. A pretrial date for the weapon charge is set for June 6.

49ers' Jeff Wilson ready to fill in for Elijah Mitchell, if needed, says John Lynch

No one is really sure exactly when Elijah Mitchell fractured his finger on Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams, but the San Francisco 49ers running back played through it. Then he had surgery to repair the break on Tuesday. He hasn't practiced yet this week, but his potential availability for this weekend's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars hasn't been eliminated. Mitchell is a tough player. He played through rib injuries earlier this season. He endured a shoulder injury before that. Could Mitchell be ready for Sunday? "We will see," 49ers general manager John Lynch said on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "I think the challenge is he had a type of break that [created] some encouragement that he would be able to function with it. But you never know



John Lynch says Frank Gore loves 49ers' Deebo Samuel as a running back

On Wednesday morning, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR. A former NFL running back and 49ers fan favorite, Frank Gore, was with Lynch in team CEO Jed York's suite this past Sunday during the team's 30-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He remains close with the York family and continues to be a big fan of his former organization. Gore was treated to watching a 79-yard, one-touchdown rushing performance from Deebo Samuel — a wide receiver. That came on just eight attempts, meaning the receiver averaged nearly 10 yards per carry. Gore believes Samuel is so impressive that the third-year wideout is good enough to be a great running back. "He loves Deebo as a running back," Lynch said. "He probably feels that if we



'We understand we've got to bring it': John Lynch explains why the 49ers aren't taking the Jaguars lightly

The San Francisco 49ers experienced the high of beating a tough division rival on Monday night, routing the Los Angeles Rams 31-10 at Levi's Stadium. The upset victory was the 49ers' first at home in over a year. The Rams were 7-2 entering that game. The 49ers' next opponent owns the opposite record. The Jacksonville Jaguars are 2-7. San Francisco is in no position to take them lightly, though. "We kind of backed ourselves into a corner, and it's not like we're a team that's 8-2," 49ers general manager John Lynch explained on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "We're 4-5, so we've backed ourselves in a corner where we just don't have that margin for error. And so, I think [we have] the level of urgency. I also believe, coming off a game where we finally put it



49ers' John Lynch, Kyle Shanahan believe a now-healthy Jimmy Garoppolo is 'functioning at a high level'

Maybe we won't see much of Trey Lance this season. That was, after all, the San Francisco 49ers' plan upon making the rookie quarterback the No. 3 overall pick in April's draft. Garoppolo has earned his three highest overall Pro Football Focus grades this season (80.2, 79.6, 82.1) over the last three games. That comes after recording his lowest mark of the season (47.1) against the Indianapolis Colts. The lull from Week 2 to his recent hot streak led to fans advocating for more of Lance. Over the past three weeks, Garoppolo's 109.8 passer rating leads all NFL quarterbacks. His 69.0 completion percentage ranks No. 4 during that span. His 80.2 adjusted completion percentage (completion percentage of aimed passes thrown on target) is second only to Tom Brady of the
