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.
