SANTA CLARA — Last Sunday, Reuben Foster wasn’t even allowed inside Levi’s Stadium. He was suspended. Had to stay far away. So, he drove to a Chick-fil-A near his house to watch the 49ers play. But Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays.
Foster forgot. He normally works on Sundays. He had to drive back home and watch from there.
This week, he actually gets to play football again. His two-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct and substances-of-abuse policies is over.
“I’ve got to be real cautious about getting too excited this week, because it’s my first day back,” Foster said at his locker on Thursday. “Getting overwhelmed is very easy. I do that every time, even if you don’t see it. I tend to do it a lot.”
The 49ers don’t seem to mind. They’re just grateful Foster is back, even if he’s overwhelmed and overexcited.
