Golden Nuggets: Reuben Foster Named Starter

NFL: San Francisco 49ers-Training Camp Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

When the 49ers were able to trade up the draft to take Reuben Foster at the end of the 1st round, they were hoping on hitting a starter and an impactful defensive player. On Tuesday, Kyle Shanahan named Reuben Foster a starter. He has taken a lot of the reps with the 1st team this training camp since Malcolm Smith has been out. He started the 1st preseason game on Friday and now he won the job. Kyle would not commit to Reuben being the opening day starter, but it seems clear that the job is Reuben’s to lose.

Wide receiver Marquise Goodwin was suspended one year by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency for not reporting his whereabouts. Goodwin was a member of the 2012 Olympic Field and Track and is subject to certain requirements. He will not be subject to any discipline from the NFL because of this decision. Goodwin is expected to a big contributor of the offense this season.

On Tuesday, the team did not have any noticeable injuries during practice. Aaron Lynch, DeForest Buckner, and Ronald Blair worked out on their own while still dealing with their injuries. Jaquiski Tartt, Dontae Johnson, and Brock Coyle made their way back from injury and participated in practice. The 49ers will practice with the AFC West Denver Broncos on Wednesday and Thursday.
