San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster has been suspended for the first two games of the 2018-2019 NFL season, the league announced on Tuesday.
According to Yahoo! Sports, “Foster pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor gun charge and was also arrested for marijuana possession this offseason. The NFL was able to do some gymnastics to turn that into a two-game suspension, while never addressing the domestic violence charge that ended up being dropped.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said the two-game suspension was for “violating the NFL’s Conduct and Substances of Abuse policies. The violations stem from a weapons offense and a misdemeanor drug offense, both of which were resolved earlier this year.”’
