Another Suspension Handed Down in the NFL

Earlier today, it was announced that Reuben Foster has been suspended for two games by the NFL for violating the league’s conduct and substance abuse policies.

According to Herbie Teope, who wrote a piece for Around the NFL, these charges stem from a weapons offense and misdemeanor drug charges that had already been resolved in the off-season. This happened awhile ago, but the suspension is just now being handed down from the league.

It has been an eventful offseason for Reuben Foster. A couple of months ago, he dodged a bigger bullet when his domestic violence case was dismissed after the accuser recanted her accusations against him, stating under oath that she fabricated the accusations. However, this time around, Foster won’t dodge punishment.

The 49ers will be without Foster for the first two games of the season, where they will face off against the Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions. However, per Teope, he will still be able to participate in training camp and preseason games. This suspension just adds to the long list for this offseason, as it seems like there have been A LOT of suspensions, mainly for PEDs.
