The San Francisco 49ers said on Wednesday that linebacker Reuben Foster could re-join with his domestic violence charge resolved, and they confirmed on Thursday he was back.

The 49ers opened OTAs this week, but after practices on Monday and Tuesday, they did not have a field session on Wednesday. The team was back on Thursday for one day, and then returns for more OTAs on May 29th and 30th. There will be classroom work and strength and conditioning work in the meantime.
But for now, Reuben’s back and that will shake up the depth chart. Earlier this week, the 49ers had a first team linebacker duo of Malcolm Smith (middle) and Korey Toomer (weak side), with Fred Warner getting second team work. Foster will likely return to the middle and that gives the team a chance for Smith and Toomer to rotate on the weak side. Brock Coyle remains sidelined rehabbing his torn labrum.
