UPDATE (12:40pm on Thursday) -- The 49ers posted the following video to Twitter:
Reuben Foster is ready to rock and roll.
49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan provided an update on the rookie linebacker on Thursday:
Reuben Foster is officially medically cleared to practice.— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoNBCS) July 27, 2017
Reuben Foster had final ultrasound Wed at Stanford, given full clearance. The #49ers medical staff was always confident he’d be ready.— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoNBCS) July 27, 2017
According to Shanahan, no players will be on the PUP or NFI when camp opens.
As NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco wrote in mid-June:
Foster, the No. 31 overall pick in the draft, was the subject of national reports that he would require another surgery and could miss his entire rookie season. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported, citing a “well-placed source,” that Foster’s surgery “didn’t take.”
After the 49ers drafted him, Foster disputed the reports.
“That’s not accurate at all,” Foster said in April. “I’m fine. I’m on schedule.”
Foster sustained the tear of the labrum in his right shoulder during Alabama’s national semifinal game against Washington. He played in the championship game against Clemson with the injury.
He underwent surgery on his rotator cuff that forced him to sit out drills at the NFL scouting combine in February. Foster was sent home from Indianapolis after an argument with a hospital worker while he was waiting to undergo a physical.
The 49ers' first preseason game is in Kansas City on Friday, Aug. 11.
