SANTA CLARA – The people love Reuben Foster, and Reuben Foster loves the people.
After the San Francisco 49ers’ dismantling of the Jacksonville Jaguars on Christmas Eve, Reuben Foster seemed to be in a good mood. He was in such a good mood that he took a lap after the game to give a high-five to anyone who wanted it.
Foster had five tackles, including a tackle for a loss and a QB hit, in the team’s 44-33 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He didn’t finish the game, but Kyle Shanahan updated Foster’s status postgame and said keeping the rookie LB out was just a precautionary measure.
“Yeah, he got another stinger in that game,” Shanahan said. “He came out and went back in. I don’t know if it was Breida, when Breida got that score, but we pulled him out at the end.
“He could have gone. He was battling through it, but we want to make sure he’s ready for next week.”
For the final week of the season the 49ers travel to the city of angels to play the upstart Rams, in a game that should be eons more exciting to watch than what it looked like at the start of the year.
