Foster is now being kept away from San Francisco's team facility following the domestic assault accusation that he hit his ex-girlfriend Elissa Ennis.

The 49ers said they would release Foster if the allegations proved to be true. Domestic violence is such a tricky topic in this day and age that I'm going to go ahead and dance around this one.

"I was threatening Reuben", Ennis said under oath, according to Bay Area News Group's Cam Inman. "I didn't think it would get this far".

She also testified she flagged down a passerby to call 911 on Foster after considering whether to falsify charges following a verbal altercation.

Inman adds that Ennis tesified, "I told him I'm going to f-k your s-t up and make sure you don't have a job tomorrow".

Ennis confirmed that Foster did not strike her.

Ennis had previously told police that he punched her 10 times, dragged her down a flight of stairs, threw her phone, physically forced her outside and spit on her.

Ennis could be subject to prosecution, herself, if she testifies that her initial statement to police was made falsely.
