SANTA CLARA — 49ers rookie linebacker Reuben Foster missed six games in September and October. In November, he missed zero games and won the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Month award.
Foster recorded 30 tackles during November — 14 against the Arizona Cardinals on Nov. 5, 10 against the New York Giants on Nov. 12 and six against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
Foster could have made more than 30 tackles had the 49ers played more than three games in November. But they had their bye week between Nov. 13 and 20.
“When we drafted him, I thought if he could stay healthy he’d be the Rookie of the Year,” 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said Thursday in the 49ers auditorium.
